	Hi Matt.

	You probably know this already, but GENERIC build currently
	fails due to the asr(4) device making calls to devsw() which was
	removed when you need the stage1 (or 2, not sure) commit.  No
	biggie, but just a pointer. :-)

	Strangely, CVSWeb is lagging in showing new CVS commits made to
	the CVS repo...
