Those files aren't 100% complete. Excerpt of a mail I sent last night
to Warren Toomey:
#The instructions in boot.doc are mangled.
#The patches included are reversed, and didn't apply cleanly to one of
#the files (/usr/src/net/sys/sys/machdep.c). Also, it looks like the
#guy that produced that set of changes forgot to include his
#modifications to /usr/src/sys/conf/config, but I managed to hack
#together something that might work.
Then there's the fact that the 2.9 distribution won't even compile,
and the 2.9 upgrade patches are a nightmare...
Maybe I'll just stick to venix :-)
