Oh, yeah, sorry. I forgot about that feature where it shows all 29347
device entries, even if they're invalid. Ever tried doing an ls /dev? It
simply bites. Plus, with non-DevFS, you have to wonder whether it's the
driver, or the app, or locking, or ...; with DevFS, if the device isn't
there, it hasn't been initialised, or whatever. Simple.

It has nothing to do with wanting "c00l". If you want to keep this
thread up, please move it to private mail, where I can easily send it to
