It prints the defect map several times over, and most of the entries are

It also doesn't tell you which were mapped at the factory, and which are

Still playing with it.  Can't get it to run properly on NetBSD-sparc.

You would think tools like this would be a little better, but then most
people probably never check on their drives, so there is no demand.
