Building DragonFly (was: Initial messaging ...)

I figured we would want to wait on Matt's messaging stuff.

I still haven't found the time to figure out why I don't get a
Makefile for /usr/src.
Maybe its because I don't like the directories the default instructions 
me to check things out into and my tiny modification of the CVSup file
has caused the problem.

	I have researched into updating the ATA driver in DragonFly
	(i.e. 4.x effectively).  There are too many updates that have
	gone in the FreeBSD-5.x driver, such as:
		- PC-98 support
		- BusDMA'ing, for making it work on SPARC
		- Chipset code improvements. (ata-chipset.c was added)
	I would rather wait until the Dev Messaging stuff is completely
	done before bringing in any Hardware updates, apart from Chipset
	ID additions :-)

The flow never stops coming it seems.

4.8 RELEASE doesn't boot on my box...
Hardware is too new I spose... seems to be an ATA thing too.
	Hopefully, someone will volunteer to backport all sorts of
	things from 5.x, including hardware support excetra.  I just
	don't want to swamp Matt with patches. :-)
