Needs ChangeLog (easy to make for whoever is commiting). I think this can go in so marking it as `In Progress' (which I use as a tag for anything that should go in).

Hello!

while porting I found some packages that assume MAKEDEV will
have a 'generic' target. I made up one basing on the description
from the GNU/Linux MAKEDEV manpage:

generic
Create a generic subset of devices. This is the
standard devices, plus floppy drives, various hard
drives, pseudo-terminals, console devices, basic
serial devices, busmice, and printer ports.

(leaving mouse and printer)

See patch

cheers,

Looking at that pathc, I notice you left out SCSI devices. Was that
intentional?

The name sucks. std sucks already, to have std and generic is hopeless
beyond any reason :) But if it is just for compatibility, then that's not
so bad. Just tell me, what packages did you work on that a generic target
exists?

Thanks,
Marcus
