I can at least say I found the same problem in a snapshot from a few
days ago (I think 08 Nov 03) for an install with a Mylex controller, as
where the devices were incorrectly referenced as mlx0p1a instead of
mlx0s1a and so on. I finally installed an 5.1-REL and updated in that
situation, because I just had it around.
