if_config processing wants to auto-load modules named with an if_ prefix,
while specfc wants to auto-load modules without the prefix. For modules
which can be loaded both ways (ie, if_tap and if_tun), provide a simple
conversion table for specfs so it can auto-load the if_ module.
This table should always be quite small, and the auto-load operation is
relatively infrequent, so the additional overhead of comparing names should
would you mind reverting this and implementing the "dependant"
module model mlelstv proposed?
the above is a hack and doesn't scale or work if a new module
with the same "problem" is introduced, as it requires the base
kernel to be patched, where as a pair of modules can be added
much more easily.
Sure, I can do that. Point well taken re requiring base kernel mods to
add new table entries.
It will take me a couple of days to complete and test. I've got a lot
of issues dealing with my new machine...
