newfs -r 2

I have found that newfs in 8-STABLE has -r switch with zero default value.
I think it should be 1 or 2 by default: as I understand, these sectors
are not used usually by filesystem anyway since they are not in last
cylinder group. Therefore noone would see the difference in usable space,
but this reservation will allow to add gjournal to the filesystem later.

BTW, could anyone tell how to learn the last sector that filesystem
may really use ?
