makefs(8): Fix calculation of metadata segmets sizes

Authored by on Thu, May 5, 12:49 PM.


  • Remove "ncg" variable. It's always 1 and it was used to multiply stuff.

Adjust size calculations to match what is done in ffs_mkfs routine:

  • Depending on the UFS version the superblock is stored at a different offset. Take that into account.
  • Add the cylinder group block size.
  • All of the above has to be aligned to the block size.
