Re: netbsd-10, merging device-streams (xstreamtodev, rdbinfo)

Hi Roc,

I'm dealing with a sudden burst of $dayjob related stuff, but I should get time to look at this in a day or so - thanks again for the work on this

Hi Carlos,

Yes, this updates xstreamtodev. This "device-streams" name comes from
what the uuencoded source code tarball in netbsd's CVS is called. Its
makefile builds: streamtodev, devtostream, xstreamtodev, xstreamtodev
and rdbinfo.

My changes make it so that it builds with the most common AmigaOS
crossdev toolchain today (it used SAS/C back in the day). I also
cleaned it up and changed everything necessary for large disk support
when available (TD64 and NSD) and otherwise to be safe against 4GB+

This work is in the github I linked, including the full history of the
changes I made. The license is of course kept to what the original
author had.

A developer with commit access would have to uuencode and update the
rdbinfo and xstreamtodev binaries. Using mine outright (github release
binaries or aminet, they are the same) is an option.

As the version we currently have in the netbsd CVS repo will happily
clobber your data if asked to write past the 4GB mark, it would be
particularly nice for this to be included in the netbsd-10 release.
