Bug#658617: compatibility with CAM in 9.0 userland

Package: kfreebsd-image-8.3-0-amd64
Severity: normal

The CAM subsystem in Current kFreeBSD 8.3 snapshots is incompatible with
9.0 userland (libcam, camcontrol, etc) which is currently in unstable.

Unless userland side can be backward compatible with both CAM versions
in kernel (which is very unlikely), a possible solution could be to
backport CAM API changes to kfreebsd-8.

The following upstream commits could be a good start:


-- System Information:

Architecture: kfreebsd-amd64 (x86_64)

Kernel: kFreeBSD 8.1-1-amd64
