Saw something about handling unplugged disks, &c.
Do we support hot-plugging in general? I.e., if you have a disk that's
powered down at boot time, say sd2, any accesses will come back with
sd2: Device not configured
...but if you power it up and try again, the kernel will conf it in? Kind
of a la SunOS. This was one of those things about SunOS that I actually
Similarly, if the device had been there previously and then went offline,
the next access would cause it to eventually (15-60 seconds) report
...does this work (yet)? Do we ever intend to support it?
Actually, all things considered, I'm quite amazed that my sun is
running something *besides* SunOS. Kudos to *everyone* that has helped
NetBSD get where it is now.
