Well, it now has the NetBSD1_2 symbol defined ...
NetBSD1_2 0 (pre-release, i.e. 1.2_ALPHA, 1.2_BETA)
NetBSD1_2 1 (the released NetBSD 1.2)
NetBSD1_2 2 (and higher ... post-1.2 current, i.e. 1.2A, 1.2B...)
The release branch, what everyone currently sups on, is currently on
NetBSD1_2 == 0, but is defined.
I'll let JT comment further on when the NetBSD1_2 symbol will change to 1.
Nonetheless, when I changed changed ifnet, I really should have bumped
NetBSD1_1 to `4' (i.e. NetBSD 1.1C). It just didn't cross my mind ...
The last time there was a NetBSD ...C was for 0.9 .. and there were some
hairy changes happening around that time ... A->B and B->C saw
_significant_ new changes ... one one shared libraries, I think, and the
other was the 64-bit filesystem, if I remember correctly. In comparison,
if_name/if_unit -> if_xname seems tame... :-)
