Hi, all -- I'm still not able to get cgd working on -4.

I've built various kernels over the weeks with newer cvs snapshots, but no =
joy. My latest attempt was with netbsd-4 on 18 Dec.

I was away shortly after some people posted various patches, and by the tim=
e I returned to this, it seemed that the cgd had been adjusted somewhat, so=
 I never did apply any other fixes.

My working kernel is 4.99.4, which I built on 21 Nov. My userland is the sa=

The error msg I'm getting from the -4 kernel is:

Configuring CGD devices.
cgdconfig: can't open cgd "cgd0", "cgd0"
cgdconfig: action failed on "/etc/cgd/cgd.conf" line 1

If cgd does indeed work in 4, I could just backup my partition and recreate=
 the device, but if it doesn't, I'll just stick with my working 4.99.4 unti=
l it's sorted out.

If there's any other way I can help, just drop a note here and I'll see wha=
t I can do.
