From a quick scan (off the web page) the sio change appears only briefly at
"2.2 Kernel Changes". This was probably already in 5.4, no? Perhaps that's
why it's not very pronounced. I went from 5.X to 6.0 through cvsup and
UPDATING doesn't seem to have it either. It was no problem for me though,
just a matter of reading the man page.
I haven't checked the Handbook on this, but if nothing about sio is there
perhaps someone would want to update.
