Fix bug

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.
Comment 1 Kurt Jaeger freebsd_committer 2015-10-17 19:35:38 UTC
We assume that the -F option is sufficient to use mkntfs.
Comment 2 Daniel O'Connor 2015-10-18 07:12:32 UTC
"Works as intended" means you always have to use -F? This seems user hostile :(
Comment 3 Kurt Jaeger freebsd_committer 2015-10-18 08:29:27 UTC
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...
