100% agreement here.  Except for a minor thingy..  Why can't the
NetBSD driver figure out the interface like the FreeBSD one.. :)
I thought the reason we printf'd was to provide *more* debugging
info?  At the very minimum, I think that kernels with DEBUG or 
DIAGNOSTIC should continue to be "verbose" with printf's, and those
users that want more tidy output can remove them from the config
file.  Following the diskless argument, the selected media is
*very* important to know if there is a problem.
