I believe that /stand/sysinstall treats the whole disk as new
and will build file systems on all partitions rather than just
partitions that have been tinkered with.
I could well be wrong and /stand/sysinstall could be more sophisticated
than I think, but I wouldn't bank on it short of going through the code.
