"Bruce" is wonderfully ambiguous in this context.  Bruce Mah noticed
what seemed like an omission and asked Bruce Simpson if this should be
hooked up.  Bruce Simpson said, "I don't mind if you do.  It seems that
we're still shipping with the sab driver and haven't deprecated in
favour of uart(4) yet...."  I don't know if Bruce Evans has an opinion
on this.  :-)

Anyways...sab is in the sparc64 GENERIC as of the RELENG_5_2 branchpoint
and I'm staring at the dmesg(8) output from a 5.2-BETA sparc64 machine:

sab0: <Siemens SAB 82532 v3.2> addr 0x1400400000-0x140040007f irq 43 on ebus0
sab0: [FAST]
sabtty0: <ttya> on sab0
sabtty0: console 9600,8,n,1,-
sabtty1: <ttyb> on sab0

So this driver (and manpage) seem pretty applicable still.

Bruce.
