I have committed a couple of changes to the vax code now after 1.2 is
released. Some of those are major rewritings and causes lots of new
bugs to appear; but it was necessary to do it.
The MSCP code is now working more like the SCSI code. This means that
adding support for new MSCP cards only requires to write the DMA
support code. It only took about 30 minutes to write support for
KDB50 and will probably take about the same to get KLESI-B to work :-)
The MSCP code also supports dynamic autoconfiguration. This means,
if one plug in a disk when a machine is up-and-running it will
find and config the disk immediately.
Among the other things that is changed is the way CPU-specific
things are set up. This is also likely to change more as soon as
I will get time to do it.
