Maybe iobuf ought to go back to being a void * with casting where the
arithmetic happens. If it's changed, newfs/mkfs.c should probably change
Is there some subtle difference that makes the casting ok in newfs/mkfs.c:
dp1 = (struct ufs1_dinode *)(&iobuf[start]);
and not ok in growfs/growfs.c r212885:
dp1 = (struct ufs1_dinode *)iobuf;
or is it just ignored because WARNS is 3 for newfs and is defaulted to 6 for growfs?
