  1. Remove doscmd(1).

    Sascha Wildner authored
    Whatever it is that people take for running MS-DOS stuff nowadays, we do
    not need to maintain this in the base.
    It was i386 only, too.

  1. kernel: Remove the unused HW_WDOG option.

    Sascha Wildner authored
  2. kernel/wdog: Compile in kern_wdog.c by default.

    Sascha Wildner authored
    Actually it was always compiled in by default but the code depended
    on the WATCHDOG_ENABLED option which is not in the GENERIC kernels.
    Simply remove the WATCHDOG_ENABLE option. The code is small, it does
    nothing by default than initializing a lock, a /dev/wdog and a
    callout, and it also makes it easier for people who want to use
    ichwd(4) by simply kldloading it.

  1. Binutils 2.20: Effectively remove from world

    John Marino authored
    There is no longer a reason to maintain multiple versions of binutils
    in the base system.  While contrib/binutils-2.20 directory isn't being
    removed quite yet, this commit effectively removed binutils 2.20 from
    Sometime in the future, binutils may be removed from the objformat
    handler.  The value of the BINUTILSVERS variable no longer has any
    effect, and the only version of binutils on the system is 2.21.

  1. Switch the default binutils from 2.17 to 2.21.

    Sascha Wildner authored
    The optional binutils is now 2.20 and can be selected using 'binutils220'
    Please do a full buildworld/-kernel for upgrading.

  1. UPGRADING: Say that a full build is actually a must for gcc41 -> gcc44.

    Sascha Wildner authored
    In order for the fix for silencing the inline warnings to be picked
    up, a new cross-compiler must be built (which will later be used for
    compiling the kernel where the fix is needed). This won't work with
    quickworld since quickworld skips the cross-tools step.

  1. UPGRADING: Fix typo.

    Sascha Wildner authored
  2. At long last, switch us to using GCC 4.4 as the default compiler.

    Sascha Wildner authored
    [I've put some notes into UPGRADING which I quote here.]
    That means that any settings that set CCVER to 'gcc44' are not needed
    anymore. Instead, CCVER can be set to 'gcc41' to go back to using
    GCC 4.1.
    The NO_GCC44 options has been removed and will not affect the build
    anymore. There is now a NO_GCC41 option that will prevent GCC 4.1 from
    building in a similar fashion.
    Also, we recommend to do a full buildworld/buildkernel for upgrading.
    Thanks-to: sephe, Max Herrgard and everybody else who helped with
               testing and fixing.

  1. DEVFS - rollup - Userland, nrelease, and installer

    Matthew Dillon authored
    * Remove MAKEDEV and MAKEDEV use in the build system.
    * Add a new libc function fdevname() taking a file descriptor and
      returning the device name.
    * Remove the MFS /dev for the CD and adjust the nrelease build system
      to use devfs.
    * Installer adjustments:  PFI search path, remove device node maker
      (it is non-applicable with devfs).
    * Add mount_devfs to the build Makefile.
    * Change dhclient to use an auto-cloning bpf.
    * The VN device now uses labels by default, and no longer supports
      non-label configurations (though you can of course ignore the label
      area and just r/w the raw device anyway).
