NetBSD vmware-netbsd 4.99.72 NetBSD 4.99.72 (MASTER) #2: Sat Sep  6 13:03:36 
CEST 2008  juan@vmware-netbsd:/home/juan/build/obj/sys/arch/i386/compile/MASTER 
The ld(4) driver will crash at attach time with a NULL pointer dereference due 
to incomplete device_t/softc split for all its attachments (note that I'm 
responsible for ataraid(4) crash :-).

I created a patch that will change all ld(4) users to switch to 
CFATTACH_DECL_NEW. The patch has been tested with ataraid(4), I'd like to hear 
if there's any problem in the other attachments, as well as someone testing 
them to verify.

Will send a patch to this PR in a few minutes. This patch will supersede the 
one from kern/39394.
