The pms(4) driver was pulled from GENERIC in head (r286131) and
stable/10 (r286132).  I am awaiting a response within re@ to make this
change in releng/10.2, after which the 10.2-RC2 builds will be restarted
to include this change, as this is entirely too dangerous to allow by
default.  As such, there will be delay with the 10.2-RC2 availability.
