Sorry, but that doesn't even get to first base for what I was asking
for. It's just _not_ a `catalog of changes'. The first URL is a
position statement and a list of advisories which OpenBSD has fixes
for. The second is more useful, but still not even close.
I specifically asked for a comparison of the two codebases, and that's
just not here. Heck, there's not even a comparison of which of the
security problems fixed in the two code-bases.
I'm more interested in how the kernel code-bases have diverged, given
der Mouse's statement, and innovations like bus-space and bus-dma
(which would tend to contardict Mouse).
We know those're being picked up by FreeBSD. Is OpenBSD adopting
those NetBSD features, too?
