:I have a question.
:By recent change
: is no longer existing in sys/device.h.
:Can someone give me a clue what is a substitute, or any recovery plan
:it will be back soon ?
:I'm using dev_ops_add() in kqemu module modevent() routine.
:thank you,

    Yes, its gone.  It is no longer needed because its functionality
    has been added to make_dev().

    Prior to DEVFS both dev_ops_add() and make_dev() were called.

    Post-DEVFS only make_dev() is called.
