This all makes sense.
There was some followup discussion for this on irc that I want to
make sure is captured here:

The command written to /dev/drivers will change to be one of:
chdev DEVS
chdev -DEVS

with them acting like the current 'permit' and 'eject' commands respectively.
This will be given a matching chdev(1) rc script, and the ns file command
will be updated to match the chdev(1) interface.


thanks,
moody
