[issue762] missing 's0' in device use

:Well, when I "ls /dev/vkd0*", I get:
:/dev/vkd0 /dev/vkds0 /dev/vkds0a ...
:There is no /dev/vkd0a printed.
:First time I configured the vkernel, I referred to an old version of
:vkernel.7 and had to manually add 's0' to some other commands so after
:checking /dev as shown above I added it in /etc/fstab too and it's
:been running ok since.
:However, I've just put /dev/vkd0a in /etc/fstab and it works too.
:Is 's0' somehow added by mount or the kernel?

    The manual page is definitely wrong, it needs to be vkd0s0a.  It works
    because even though the manual page is wrong, the vkernel doesn't
    actually use the '/' entry in /etc/fstab to figure out what to do.
    But it does create confusion so I'm fixing it right now.
