Hi Kevin and thanks for your reply,

As I just told Kenneth (switched to private exchanges to not spam the
list with meaningless stuff), I'm afraid I don't get a sys/dev/mps/
folder when I sync against RELENG_8

nas# grep release /etc/cvsup/stable-supfile
*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_8

nas# ls -lad /usr/src/sys/dev/mp*
drwxr-xr-x  3 root  wheel  512 Feb 18 19:17 /usr/src/sys/dev/mpt

Oh wait, it occurs to me the mirror I sync on might not be up to date yet...

SUPFILE=        /etc/cvsup/stable-supfile
