    SubjectRe: devfs patch v3

    Hello All, Please No Sloaris look alikes ....

    Richard Gooch I beleive has gotten a consensus
    that is like this :

    /dev/dsk/sd_h0c0t0u0p2:
    h=host,
    c=channel,
    t=target,
    u=unit,
    p=partition

    I'd still prefer the directory structure /dev/disk/sd_-blah-
    or /dev/disk/scsi/-blah- .

    But Richard has the Sources ;-)
