Error "MAKEDEV: dri0: unknown device" in -current/amd64


for a while now I've been getting the above mentioned error from
MAKEDEV. Today I investigated the cause and it turns out that the dri*)
case intrudoced in etc/MAKEDEV.tmpl rev. 1.126 actually never ends up
in /dev/MAKEDEV. This is because the device is actually called drm in
sys/conf/majors and the entry is deleted by etc/MAKEDEV.awk.

The following patch changes "MAKEDEV dri" to "MAKEDEV drm". The drm*)
case is then correctly created and the correct major number is picked up
from sys/conf/majors.

Best regards,
