Hmm.  Strange.  Last time I looked, I thought I had /dev/fd0, /dev/fd1
and /dev/fd2.  But I've booted a new kernel since that attempt.

They must have been before I met you, then.  My very vivid
recollection was that I met you at USENIX in New Orleans on 19 June
1998, and the very first thing you said was "What does Vinum do about
DEVFS?  Don't use it, it's going away".  We (you, Justin Gibbs,
Jonathan Bresler, and I, maybe also one other person, but not Julian,
whom you wouldn't let participate) then found an empty room and we
discussed the matter.  It was an interesting first impression.
