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 ;-)
