Is there a handbook or wiki entry which would point one to the procedure for
"properly" moving from 2.4.2 to 2.6.16 emulation under -current? I believe I
saw some posts that 2.6.x would not be default for 7.0-RELEASE for whatever
technical reason.....

Can anybody report success on -current with 2.6.16 emulation with the flash9
