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 :-)
