"unrecognized", actually.   If this is something you'd like to work
on, you should bring it up on gnu-arch-users.   Have a look through
the archives -- the idea has been discussed before and the issues that
need to be addressed by a patch have been described.

You should ask on gnu-arch-users if a more experienced arch hacker is
interested in helping you with this or in trying to figure out a
meaningful approach to HFS support.
