[support-gang] 1TB drive of quality open content on XO/XS--won't boot

It doesn't prevent boot of an XO in my tests just now.  Open Firmware
simply ignores the device, and won't boot from it.  Sugar sees the
drive fine.

# dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdc bs=1M count=1
# mkudffs -b 512 --media-type=hd /dev/sdc

For USB flash drives, I know that some devices do wear levelling
differently for the FAT filesystem areas, so I would not recommend UDF
for USB flash drives.
