 With ext2 filesystem on external media, and an 8 GB internal eMMC, `fs-
 save` yields a file of 7944011776 bytes, but the Open Firmware `dir`
 command displays this as 3649044480 bytes; bit 32 of the 64-bit integer
 size is lost; 0x1D9800000 vs 0xD9800000.

 `fs-save` took over an hour.  Using a Linux booted from USB, the `dd`
 equivalent takes five minutes.

 You're excused for your indoctrination.  `fs-save` is not available to
 users, because the `ok` prompt is not accessible.

 We have no plans for another Open Firmware release at the moment, but
 you're welcome to patch it and send us the patch.  Look at `fssave.fth`
 for some of the implementation detail.
