Re: Time to remove COMPAT_386BSD_MBRPART

Now that netbsd-6 has been branched, I think it's time to
remove COMPAT_386BSD_MBRPART. This entails both the kernel code
and some code in disklabel(8) and sysinst. The kernel code
has been disabled by default for years; the disklabel(8) code
was overlooked at the time and disabled about a year ago (in
both current and -5) after several reports of trashed FreeBSD
partitions were traced to it.
Does anyone object? It's been a good long time since the
partition ID changed.
No objection, but please can it be added to "Features that will be
removed in the next version" in the netbsd-6 release notes.
