Re: Time to prune some drivers? ISA SCSI, tape, etc.
for any i386 host which isn't able to load kernel modules, this is a real
so, are there that many? and are there drivers in that list, which are not
ameanable to being kld-ized?
otherwise, while its an inconvenience, surely this is really just a request to
prune GENERIC, because MONOLITHIC is left un-altered, and given a current boot
loader, and a pruned GENERIC plus a floppy or other media, the drivers can be
(re)loaded as needed.
or have I completely misunderstood?
google, or one of the like waterfall systems would simply fork the prebuilt
kernel set into a new subclass, and move on. surely with an automated build, we
can leave this one in the space of 'somebody does it for you' and stop
