What Frank did is that he added a newfat XFS to the kernel which does not
have the limitations of TOSFS (which goes through the TOS' GEMDOS). I don't
think that he actually changed the way how the kernel supports drive
so whatever it is right now (26 or 32), it was the same for years.

Frank, correct me if I'm wrong.
