I have now done a full diff between a fresh cvs checkout and a fresh git
checkout, ignoring lines with $NetBSD.*$ and with $Header.*$.

Summary of differing files:
It seems that the timestamps on the cvs versions are the time of the
checkin, or close enough, while the git timestamps are those of the
checkout (i.e. very recent).

In most cases that I've checked, the incorrect file seems to be the
next-to-most-recent version instead of the most recend version.

    strange Header: vs. $Header: difference; maybe the importer trying
    to fix things up.

    file seems to be from wrong branch

    this and other files in this directory use $Log$ tags, which expand
    the commit log message into the file, and those are (understandibly)
    missing the latest entry.

    a bunch of other files in this directory seem to be the
    next-to-latest version too:
    ata_wdc.c atareg.h atavar.h satafis_subr.c wd.c wdvar.h 

    .../cardbus/siisata_cardbus.c .../ic/ahcisata_core.c

    The time of the latest version of some of these files seems to
    be about 2 weeks ago, perhaps around the time that the git
    repository was made? But it isn't true for all files, some haven't
    been changed in years.

These are all the files that appear different.

There is also a whole bunch of files that are in git but not cvs; those
look like they came back from the Attic.

A full list can be seen at .
