I have updated the patches. I have removed the XPT_DEV_ADVINFO changes from the patches to head, since I committed those separately.
I have (hopefully) fixed the build for the stable/10 patches by MFCing dependencies. (One of them mav did for me, thanks!) Rough draft commit message: http://people.freebsd.org/~ken/sa_changes_commitmsg.20150218.1.txt The patches against FreeBSD/head as of SVN revision 278975: http://people.freebsd.org/~ken/sa_changes.20150218.1.txt And (untested) patches against FreeBSD stable/10 as of SVN revision 278974: http://people.freebsd.org/~ken/sa_changes.stable_10.20150218.1.txt Thanks, Ken On Fri, Feb 13, 2015 at 17:32:32 -0700, Kenneth D.
