The ppcoea-renovation branch has seen lots of activity. This branch aims to
rejuvenate the various ppc ports by consolidating the large amount of
duplicate code. A lot of work has gone into several ppc ports but there is
still work to do. [various]

Add jmide(4), a driver for the JMicron Technology JMB36x PCIe to SATA II/PATA
controllers. These controllers can be found on add-on PCIe cards, or on some
motherboards to provide the PATA connectivity (e.g. some intel ICH8-based
motherboards). Thanks go to JMicron Technology for providing Manuel with
documentation and hardware. [Manuel Bouyer] 

The yamt-idlelwp branch has been merged. [Yamamoto Takashi]

Hundreds of pull ups the the netbsd-4 branch [releng]

We now support floppy drives on SBus based machines. [John Nemeth]

Enable Fast SCSI transfers for WD33C93B parts with appropriate input clocks.
Seagate ST32430N now sees about 50% greater throughput (about 97% as fast as
IRIX can push it). However, there appear to be other performance issues with
the driver as other disks perform significantly worse than they should, with
or without this change. [Stephen M. Rumble].
