Description

This came up during today's meeting:
Looking at http://src.opensolaris.org/source/xref/onnv/onnv-gate/usr/src/cmd/format/startup.c#2985 ... the code looks a bit inefficient:
1. There are multiple calls of |strlen(DISK_PREFIX)| where |DISK_PREFIX| is a constant string literal
2. The whole |memset(..., 0, ...)| for the buffer used by |readlink()| is an overkill because |readlink()| returns the number of bytes written into the buffer.
