mount_chfs -- mount a CHFS flash file system

drives or USB drives, please use a regular file system. The file system
will be created during the first mount. CHFS stands for Chip File Sys-

A mount_chfs utility appeared in NetBSD 6.0. CHFS was originally called
ChewieFS during development. The name was changed to avoid legal issues
and to have a more neutral name.
CHFS was developed at the Department of Software Engineering, University
of Szeged, Hungary.
CHFS has a few known bugs as of 2011. Writing the FS full can cause
problems. Truncating a file and growing it again can cause the new bytes
not having all zeroes, but filled with the old content instead.
