Subject: messages about track alignment
Date: Sat, 13 Nov 2010 16:44:33 +0100
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: kfreebsd-image-8.1-1-amd64
Version: 8.1-5
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

kFreeBSD usually spits a bunch of messages about partitions
not starting/ending on track boundary during boot:

GEOM: da0: partition 2 does not start on a track boundary.
GEOM: da0: partition 2 does not end on a track boundary.
GEOM: da0: partition 1 does not start on a track boundary.
GEOM: da0: partition 1 does not end on a track boundary.

These messages are a remnant of the past, as track alignment
is currently meaningless to the disk (hard disks manage
their geometry internally, and new devices such as flash/SD
don't even have tracks).

Here's a patch to remove them.
