Afetr building, booting, and doing some reality checks with today's
-CURRENT on my laptop, I issued the command sequence

        sudo boot0cfg -s 1 ad0 && sudo halt -p

in order to prepare it to (default to) boot from slice 1 (which has
today's -STABLE on it) and power the machine off (the latter in order
to be able to use a NIC in a PCCard form factor under -STABLE after
having run a NEWCARD-based -CURRENT).

Historically, sometimes this has worked (as in, the machine powers off
OK by itself); other times it spits out a message

The operating system has halted.
Please press any key to reboot.

at which point the "key" that I press is the power switch.  :-}

This time, however, what I saw (hand-transcribed) is:

syncing disks... 2 2
Uptime: 3m34s
pccbb1: bad Vcc request.  ctrl=0x0, status=0x30000719
pccbb_power: CARD_VCC_0V and CARD_VPP_0V [44]

The operating system has halted.
Please press any key to reboot.

and the pccbb*-related messages struck me as something I wasn't really

In looking through the sources, the "bad Vcc request" message comes from
src/sys/dev/pccbb/pccbb.c:1129; the version of that file that I have is:

$FreeBSD: src/sys/dev/pccbb/pccbb.c,v 1.41 2002/02/20 16:20:27 imp Exp $

but since it hasn't been updated in a while, I don't see how that would
make a significant contribution to determining what happened (bearing in
mind that I'm tracking -CURRENT daily).

I see that Warner had a commit Wed, 20 Mar 2002 11:02:08 -0800 (PST) to
src/sys/pccard/{pccard.c,pcic.c} with the relevant-seeming comment
"Better power code and better power diagnostics" -- but I didn't see the
message Thursday or Friday (when I did the same procedure).

I don't see any problems ascribable to whatever triggered the message,
but I thought I'd mention it in case it indicates a problem....
