NetBSD webster 1.6.2_STABLE NetBSD 1.6.2_STABLE (WEBSTER) #1: Wed Apr 28 18:20:03 CEST 2004     krille@webster:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/WEBSTER i386
If a st device is listed in the quirks table /sys/dev/scsipi/st.c prints "rogue". This isn't very intuitive. One basically needs to grep the source for this message to see what it really means.

So change this to something like "quirks apply". This makes the message immeadiately understandable.
Connect a tape drive listed in the st quirks table
Look at dmesg
Be puzzled what "rogue" means
