mkntfs complains if a device node is not a block device which is nonsensical in FreeBSD.
This patch removes the test so it works without -F.
We assume that the -F option is sufficient to use mkntfs.
"Works as intended" means you always have to use -F? This seems user hostile :(
You are right, it is useful to apply this patch. But it should also be upstreamed.
I tried to submit it upstream, but there's a rate limiting active there. Waiting...
