I have noticed that evbarm install kernels do not have the /dev/bpf

The patch below adds bpf-devices to the ramdisk target of evbarm's
This follows the behaviour of MAKEDEV ramdisk in other ports (cats,
dreamhost, evbsh3, mac68k, sandpoint, shark, and vax).

Ok to commit?
Makes sense to me...

I think this is also missing from hpcarm. The last time I tried installing
over the network I had to assign an IP address manually. I tried searching
cvsweb.netbsd.org, but I can't find where MAKEDEV lives. I'd like to check
this out for hpcsh as well since the installation kernels are new to 6.0.
It should be in etc.${port}/MAKEDEV.conf

I've just taken a pass through and added bpf to all ramdisk targets
(including hpcarm) in -current. If this fixes it for you then we
should get it pulled up into -6 :)

Thanks, I'll be happy to try the install kernels out! Will, http://nyftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD-daily/HEAD/201208151500Z/, have the changes or do I have to wait for the next build?
