If you have not gotten good results yet, try attached patch.  Of
course, your patch is also needed.

With this patch, I can mount hfs successfully.  Creating and
removing files on the filesystem are also succeeded.

But, I have not tested this fully and found some problems such as:

  1. Sometime, hfs partitions become unmountable by FreeBSD
     (mount_hfs returns "Invalid argument"), although the
     partition can still be mounted by MacOSX.

  2. After editing files on hfs filesystem with vi(1), umounting
     the filesystem causes these errors:

Feb  2 21:13:11 roma kernel: hfs_fsync: dirty: 0xc2d74000: tag hfs, type VREG, usecount 2, writecount 0, refcount 2, flags (VV_SYSTEM), lock type cnode: EXCL (count 1) by thread 0xc2b42a80 (pid 1068)
Feb  2 21:13:11 roma kernel: tag VT_HFS, cnid 4, on dev 4, 24 lock type cnode: EXCL (count 1) by thread 0xc2b42a80 (pid 1068)
(lots of same errors continue)

     Then system crashed.

These problems seem to occur on FreeBSD-5.1-RELEASE with original
hfs-freebsd-03.tar.gz, too.

So please use it with care.
