   The last rev of GENERIC built a kernel without any errors.  (Whether it
   would work, dunno.  Probably.)

   Here are the remaining signifcant diffs with GENERIC and TAO.

<TAO controller bt0     at isa? port "IO_BT0" bio irq ? vector btintr
<TAO controller ahc1    at isa? bio irq ? vector ahcintr
<TAO controller ahb0    at isa? bio irq ? vector ahbintr
<TAO device             mcd1    at isa? port 0x340 bio irq 11 vector mcdintr
<TAO device             lpt2    at isa? port? tty
<TAO device lnc1 at isa? port 0x300 net irq 10 drq 0 vector lncintr

   The first entry, bt0 is nearly identical to a line in GENERIC.
   Only the name/tag of the vector differs: from btintr to bt_isa_intr
   or whatever.

   lpt2 I'm not overly concerns about either.  Eventually, I plan
   to network my old tower to the new one by a parallel cable on 
   `COM2'... but that's lpt1, yes?

   Anyway, does anybody know what the remaining entries mean?
   ahc1, ahb0, and dev mcd1?  According to dmesg, my 2940 is on
   irq 11.  

     ahc0 <Adaptec 2940 SCSI host adapter> rev 0 int a irq 11 on pci0:15

   I'm guessing that for whatever reason, I can forget about the missing
   entries in the older configuration file.
