I added:
   device rp
   device rp0 at pci? port 0x8400

to my kernel, and the next reboot proclaims:

 /kernel: rp0: <rp> port 0x8400-0x847f irq 12 at device 7.0 on pci2
 /kernel: RocketPort0 = 16 ports
 /kernel: rp0: driver is using old-style compatibility shims


can anyone tell me how to gain access to the 16 serial ports?
I do not see any new devices added in /dev ?
