This seems to fix things like "mount -t ufs" and "find / -fstype ufs"
to not work with ufs2.  Many scripts may depend on this.

Is it too late to fix the misspelling of "ffs" as "ufs"?

The patch has some bugs (mainly clobbering of mp->mnt_stat.f_fstypename
via an alias in the first part of the change to ffs_statfs(), so the
larger second part of the change is a no-op).  Details in private mail.
