Hi list,

after updating the kernel to current from some 2.99.x on my alpha, it no
longer seems to have swap support in the kernel. Swapctl invariably
replies ENOSYS (function not implemented) and something in rc receives a
  /dev/drum: device not configured.

I looked in UPDATING and the alpha GENERIC kernel file, but nothing
stands out.
Other things I tried (I have yet to take the machine down into
single-user mode and roll out a new userland) was to update the swapctl
binary, libc and MAKEDEV but alas no banana.

I am thus wondering if someone could prod me in the direction to what is
going on here.
