Two very specific tools, upgraded

If you are one of the few people still wanting to read an OS/2 HPFS drive, support for it in DragonFly has been updated by Antonio Huete Jimenez.  It’s read-only, but writing didn’t work well, and I’d be surprised if there’s any hpfs disks that aren’t archival, out there.

Also, Sepherosa Ziehau has updated the pktgen program to generate even more packets, even at relatively low CPU clock speeds.

    Pretty sure ecomstation uses jfs

    eComStation prior to 2.0 couldn’t boot from JFS, so a HPFS partition was needed. 2.0 and 2.1 can boot from JFS, but HPFS is still available.
