Time to kill fdc ?

I tried to read a floppy disk yesterday.

When was the last time anybody tried that with a FreeBSD release ?

Based on my brief experiments yesterday, 6.X is the last release
where accessing floppy disks carry less than a 10% risk of a panic.

Unless somebody fixes the fdc driver to work in -current, I intend
to dust of my axe and cut it from the tree later this spring.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
