This is on 5.3-STABLE.

On my desktop FreeBSD PC:

  $ fstat /dev/io /dev/mem

only shows that Xorg is using these devices.

Googling on /dev/io and /dev/mem, finds only Xorg
related discussions and problems.

I now also have Server PC, that does not run X at all.
I'm about to remove the devices io and mem
in the kernel configuration. Is that OK?

How about the /dev/random device? Could that go too?
