Right, and these dead ports must be euthanized. The mountain of
unused device drivers and core kernel code is a signficant hinderance to
people working in the kernel.
I had to abandon two paid efforts last year because I ran out
of time owing to the huge amount of MD code, a lot of which is unused.
That was TNF's money and my time down the toilet, and we missed out
on multithreaded ttys and audio drivers (and a bucketload of bugfixes
along with both).
