I've got an idea to improve our LKM support. In my plan, turning
existing device drivers into LKMs would be done like following:
1. modify kernel config file with new syntax:
module com0 at isa? port 0x3f8 irq 4 # Standard PC serial ports
module ne* at isapnp?
2. config KERNEL && make depend && make lkms
3. you've got compile/KERNEL/lkm/com/com.o and compile/KERNEL/lkm/ne/ne.o
Do you think this idea prospective? Will it conflict with other works
happening recently in the NetBSD camp?
I'd like some comments before I start further work on this.
