I can read a 16G CF from a dslr just fine, and also the 2G uSD in an
etrex works ok.  I think the problem is that there is no partition
table.  Is the windows-world assumption probably that the filesystem
starts at sector 63?  Normally NetBSD wants to use a partition table to
find the filesytem and say what type it is.  I'll have to try to fake
that up.
