Not much success so far.
ufsread.c triggers several size limitations on alpha.
I'll let you know when I have it booting.

This must not be needed, since old boot blocks must keep working with
old file systems.

Does not compute.

Old bootblocks are on the disks and nobody are changing them so they will
keep working with what they work with.

This change is necessary if the alpha architecture wants to be able
to boot from a UFS2 filesystem in the future.

The UFS2 patch btw allows the ufsread() function to be compiled in a
UFS1 only or UFS1 or UFS2 configuration.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.

I'm surprised both fit in the i386 version.
