        making /dev/(null|zero) into a module proved to be too unpopular,
        so this bit has been revoked from the previous (20040801) entry.

        The /dev/mem, /dev/io /dev/(null/zero) devices are now modules,
        so you may wish to add them to your kernel config file. See
        GENERIC for examples.

I thought the note on  20040802 backed out all the changes referenced in the 
note from 20040801, including /dev/io.  

I'll try putting /dev/io in the kernel.
