Hmm, all look ok.

I have no clue; EBUSY is unlikely even for an inconsistent device

Another place you can look at is the entry point for the special
device open call: spec_open() in sys-altq/miscfs/specfs/spec_vnops.c.

You can insert something like:

       if (maj == 75)
		printf("cdevsw[75].d_open = %p\n", cdevsw[maj].d_open);

to get the address of the open routine for cdev 75.
Then, compare it with the result of "nm /netbsd | grep altqopen".
