Please help test this rewrite of the floppy driver so it can qualify
to get into 5.3.

Can the PC98 coders please try to create a fdc_cbus.c so we can use
the same driver on PC98 ?

If anybody wants to play with 2.88M floppies, I belive I found at
least one bug which would have prevented it from working with the
old driver.

If you get into trouble with this driver, please set:
	sysctl debug.fdc.debugflags=255
and recreate the problem, then send me the stuff it prints.
