New Revision: 194030
URL: http://svn.freebsd.org/changeset/base/194030

Log:
  Allow libufs(3) functions to operate on a regular file.  This makes it possible to
  use almost anything that uses libufs(3) against a file as an unprivileged user, e.g.
  tunefs(8) and dumpfs(8) against a makefs(8)-created image.
