Another item that does not appear to be mentioned is information
about the file.i386.newconf format.

Could someone point me to more documentation about this now?
I am attempting to add some device driver references that
require more than one file to be added to the dependency list.

I am getting the following from

files.i386.newconf:166: file arch/i386/isa/ad1848.c ...
files.i386.newconf:169: file arch/i386/isa/ad1848.c listed again
files.i386.newconf:172: file arch/i386/isa/sbdsp.c ...
files.i386.newconf:175: file arch/i386/isa/sbdsp.c listed again
files.i386.newconf:172: file arch/i386/isa/sbdsp.c ...
files.i386.newconf:178: file arch/i386/isa/sbdsp.c listed again
