Great news :-)

Yes, that's a relic of the recent tty subsystem changes. I'll fix that.
I'll go through the mods:
> lib/libstand/cd9660.c - something about HFS/ISO9660 hybrid CD's
> an Apple OpenFirmware 3
The HFS/9660 hybrid CDs have an Apple partition map, with the
second partition starting 16 sectors into the CD. This is
what OpenFirmware sees when given 'cd:' without a partition
The mod to libstand was an attempt to modify the iso9660 offset
calculations when given 'cd:', but since I put in the cmd-line argument
to the loader, which allows 'cd:0' to be specified, this change is no

That's some patches I've been trying for ALTQ. Should be committed soon.

This is to better support running the kernel in the gdb psim ppc
simulator. Without nopoll, a read from the OpenFirmware console blocks,
so this has to be set to 1 inside the debugger to allow forward
progress. I might commit this just to avoid keeping my diff alive.

This was Marius Stobl's patch to the zs driver. I've not really

Yeh, that was the mem module to-and-fro a while back. I'll bring this
up to date and commit it, since modules should really be built by
default from now on.

Yep, just ALTQ and PF I think. These can be dumped into GENERIC now.
I'm going to pull EHCI since it doesn't work too well with external

Without this one the /etc/fstab file isn't written, so I'll try and
get this committed.

This was John Baldwin's patches. I've backed these out in my own tree,
but I think they'll make an appearance soon in HEAD.

Better get my X changes in then :)
