Decision time.... should NATA become the default for this release?

:	Small amplification on this - the acd* devices don't work (can't
:mount them or use burncd get device not configured errors) but the
:corresponding cd* devices via atapicam work perfectly both for mounting and
:burning DVDs with cdrecord (presumably burning CDs will work too I haven't

    If you do a full system upgrade the new MAKEDEV will create the 
    proper acd* devices.  In particular, acd0 in HEAD was still running
    through the disk layer which was checking the media size and preventing
    burncd from being able to write.  The new acd0 uses the proper minor
    number to bypass the managed disk layer entirely.

    acd0a	mountable compatibility partition
    acd0c	mountable compatibility partition
    acd0	raw device access (burncd will work with this)
    acds0	compatibility slice, generally not used unless you
		want to read the fake disklabel.
