Oh! That makes sense.

That explains everything. :)
Okay, so. I'm trying to develop a sane approach to NAND flash devices.
It looks like there's some parts of this that need to be provided by some
other device, so I'm tentatively inventing a new device, flash, and flash
devices attach at other devices; for instance, on the TAMS, I'm doing
tflash* at pbus?
flash* at tflash?
The intermediate device works a little like some of the IDE controller code
does; it sets up bits and provides hooks that a more generic driver (the
flash driver) can call.
So I'd just do
device-major flash char XXX block YYY flash
in the majors file, then?
