	The ciss(4) driver offers a number IOCTLs, which are defined in
	/sys/dev/ciss/cissio.h. Unfortunately, this header file is not
	installed by installworld, which means, any programs wishing to
	use the IOCTLs can only be built in the presence of /sys tree.

	Until fairly recently no such programs really existed, but now
	smartmontools could support access to individual hard-drives
	behind a ciss RAID controller. Building the functionality
	requires the header file (which, luckily, is the same as on



	Fix is trivial -- 5 minutes of a src-committer time is all
	that's required :-)
