... or the proceedings that it's in.

The paper is by Chris Torek entitled "A New Framework for Device Support in
Berkeley Unix" from Proceedings of the UKUUG, London, Summer 1990.

The Google hits I'm getting in the proceedings suggest I'd like a copy of
the full thing.

Closest I've found is from 2005 or 2006 on archive.org... Nothing in the
TUHS archives I was able to find....

This paper is referenced in Chris Torek's "Device Configuration in 4.4BSD"
which only ever seemed to circulate in draft form. That I have a pdf of
which I converted from a ps that was on NetBSD.org...

Any chance I can get a copy of it? Or will I need to figure out
inter-library loan again for the first time in almost 2 decades...

I found it.  What are you looking for, TeX source, dvi, PostScript...?

First choice is TeX, second choice is PostScript.

I tried to wrap my mind around TeX, but ended up learning PostScript 
instead :-)

I tried to grok TeX (my then-PHB tried to force me to learn it), but ended 
up learning PostScript...  It just worked.

Indeed; he helped me with a SCSI ID problem back in ye olde BSD/OS days 
(BSDi), before WinDriver took over and trashed the joint for our 
customers.  Did I mention that WinDriver pretty lost all of their 
customers to OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD, etc?

Sounds like my own clients once; we got borged by a Big Company in order 
to flog their own (inferior) product, and to my black heart's delight each 
and everyone one of them went to an opposing product.
