You should get no errors from gethints.pl based on the disk section in
NOTES file because those entries are actual hints for device.hints, not
something that you put in a config file and feed to gethints.pl.

It works the same as the other devices:
'device scbus1 at ahc1 bus 0'
When you have a trailing '?' character in an 'at' binding, you leave it out.
eg: hint.scbus.1.at="ahc" (which would have meant "device scbus1 at ahc?")
You do not stick numbers after the 'device ahc' and 'device scbus' lines.
The device wiring comes from the hints (either /boot/device.hints or
the statically compiled in hints)
Perhaps you should post your old *ORIGINAL* config file and I'll do a worked
