Quoting Joerg Sonnenberger <joerg%britannica.bec.de@localhost>:
OK, so let's phrase the question differently. If they are considered to
be useful, why can't they be an individual device? Together with
providing the normal interface like read/write.
If I understand correctly, you're asking if /dev/vme* can get its
own device major number? If so, then we'd also lose some SunOS
compatibility. It's a weak argument, but historically NetBSD/sun3
and /sun2 major/minor numbers have deliberately matched SunOS.
