FreeBSD can make ufs partitions, and I believe the Hurd can run on
them, although I have only tried accessing ufs partitions from the
Hurd, not booting the Hurd from them.

I have wondered how the Hurd handles passive translators on ufs
partitions, as ext2fs needs to be created with the -O hurd option
in order for passive translators to work.
