System: NetBSD pizza 1.6_BETA1 NetBSD 1.6_BETA1 (PIZZA) #1: Tue Jun 4 08:44:03 CEST 2002 hauke@pizza:/export/bsd/netbsd-src/1.6/src/sys/arch/sparc/compile/PIZZA sparc

	A driver for the sun4m onboard printer port exists and is 
enabled in GENERIC kernels, but there is neither a man page, nor is there
a /dev/MAKEDEV entry to create a device node.

I am marking this as high priority since the MAKEDEV entry should be in 1.6.

	Get an expensive Sun parallel printer cable, hook a printer to
a SPARCstatioon 10, then stop dead and wonder how to get this going.
UTSL and be surprised...
	For the MAKEDEV entry, add 

	rm -f bpp$unit
	mknod bpp$unit c 107 $unit
	chmod 600 bpp$unit

For the man page, bug the person who wrote the driver...
