	Just a "me too" here.

	I had exactly the same thing happen to me as well, when I
upgraded to -current recently.  The kernel can't find the board nor
can ezsetup.  I didn't have much time to fiddle with it, so I just
brought a new one and shelved the old one.  The new one works fine,
but I only have ed configed into the kernel now.
