i have 2 compaq DLT tapes installed on an adaptec controller. dmesg 
shows me sa0 and sa1 and mt erase and mt offline can access sa0 and sa1.

i found that MAKEDEV is no longer supported and the devices are created 
on demand. but i miss /dev/nrsa0 and /dev/nrsa1 for amanda. this 2 are 
not in /dev and are not created when e.g. running amlabel which would 
label the tape.

do i oversee something?
