You should now use a boot loader program instead.
- Callout tty devices (/dev/cua) have been deprecated since 2.1.90pre2.
Support is now removed.
+- usbdevfs will be going away in 2.7. The same filesystem can

+- elvtune is deprecated (as are the ioctl's it used).
+ Instead, the io scheduler tunables are exported in sysfs (see below)
