Subject: New devsw testers, please?

For the 32 bit renumbering of major devices, I have written an awk script
(based on makesyscalls.sh) and a device table containing all devices from
all ports. It is available from:
This tar archive extracts to src/sys/conf (it's all new files; none altered,
and you don't need the 32 bit diffs to test it), and you need to cd to one
of your kernel `compile' directories, and type the following:
cc -I/sys -I. -c /sys/conf/devsw.c
If it dumps out just a devsw.o, please let me know; otherwise please forward
along the errors it generates and I shall send you a repaired devsw.master
file to regenerate and test with it. This test checks to see that I have
declared all the flag variables and flag files properly.
I have verified its cleanliness on the sparc port, but I need input on all
other ports, and suggestions on the layout of the device numbers table....
