I'd also recommend make this [my] video code optional as lots of people
don't use it...

+ Fixing all the bugs in source routing and IP tunneling.

+ Including more RAID levels.

+ Fixing the rest of IP `features' which are contary to the RFC's.

+ Speeding up initialization of sbpcd.

+ Speeding up NFS.

+ Adding support for DHCP.

+ Adding support for use of R/W shadow regions (helps a lot on a 4MB notebook!)

+ Allowing multiple displays (VGA+Hercules etc.)

+ Fix ICMP address mask request / reply.

+ Convert some network #ifdef's to sysctl()'s.

+ Adding MOXA C-218 8-port serial card driver (now being developed by me).

+ Categorizing *all* kernel messages.

+ Maybe implementing some sort of asynchronous I/O?

Martin
