Hi Ian,
I think you missed my follow-on post which preceded yours:

By manually generating the support files, I got down to 7 failures,
which I describe in the first post.  Would you mind taking a quick look
at the new test results and provide any comments?


FYI: Gold v2.22 can now DragonFly world.
However, the boot loader no longer works (a gold v2.21 boot loader
A gold v2.21 kernel worked, and probably gold 2.22 as well, but neither
version of gold can build kernel modules.  Again, it's a similar loader
problem.  I didn't mention it after v2.21 because I was hoping all the
work for 2.22 would fix it, but I guess I need to open a ticket to
describe the issue so it can be formally examined.
