whoa, this one is wicked, although it looks good ... but I don't run
-current, and don't want to .. I need something 'somehow' stable ...

could you give a look and try to
get it running with the asc-interface?

I still just need to reassign the bad blocks of this "=A7%"$%=A7 disk, with=
physical or serial access to the pmax (another reason why I don't want to
wiggle around with the kernel) ...
