Date: Wed, 5 Jan 2011 02:18:17 +0000

 Module Name:	src
 Committed By:	riz
 Date:		Wed Jan  5 02:18:16 UTC 2011

 Modified Files:
 	src/sbin/resize_ffs: Makefile TODO resize_ffs.8 resize_ffs.c

 Log Message:
 Add support for byteswapped file systems (big-endian on little-endian
 host, and vice versa), to fix PR#44203.

 Add support for growing (but not yet shrinking) UFS2 file systems.  Partially
 addresses PR#44205.

 While I'm here, reformat the code for closer adherence to KNF.

 Fairly extensive testing was performed, using the shortly-to-be-committed
 updated ATF tests.  Patch posted to tech-userlevel on 21 December 2010,
 no comments.
