I also want to try urtwn in NetBSD (I build the kernel and userland) and
OpenBSD live USB.  OpenBSD apparently has no support for either USB 3.0 or
GPT, can't access my hard drive at all.  NetBSD has no USB 3.0 support but 
supports GPT with partitions in a strange way, /dev/dk0, /dev/dk1, /dev/dk2,
and so on, with this sequence spanning all GPT devices including USB hard
drives and USB sticks.  I install NetBSD to a USB stick but have the source,
and pkgsrc too, on an older FreeBSD UFS2/ffsv2 hard-drive partition where all
the heavy work is done.

Aside from the possibility of porting urtwn from OpenBSD or NetBSD, maybe it
could be ported from Linux?
