gives now:

# file -s /dev/da0s1 
/dev/da0s1: Linux rev 1.0 ext2 filesystem data (mounted or unclean)

and /dev/da0s1 is mounted:

# mount | fgrep /dev/da0s1
/dev/da0s1 on /mnt (ext2fs, local)

the problem with (this) cardreader seems to be that the card must
already inserted at boot time; a later switch to another card, for
example from a card with 'msdosfs' to a card with 'ext2fs', gives the
problem in my first mail; don't know if this is a bug or feature :-)

ext2fs.ko is loaded automagically by mount(8); I do not load it at boot,
but after the mount(8) it was loaded;
