That is exactly what I tried to do.  I was experimenting with writing
my own filesystem.  I also am new at writing C, I mostly have done Go
in my career so far.  I then made unfortunate life choices and decided
to put my compiled program in cpurc.local.  Program crashes, yours
truly tries to mount the filesystem because, you know, that's what one
does when they've only ever done Linux things, hilarity ensues.

That being said, I apparently managed to successfully use ed to put
the correct values (adapted from what you provided) in place in
/dev/sdE0/fsmain, which is the thing I had utterly destroyed.

Thanks for the help!
