Currently exist at the FreeBSD and OpenBSD source codes comments that says, 'Does this belong here?'?


In the past was found at the FreeBSD and OpenBSD source code comments that said, 'Does this belong here?':

Code:
 
haeleth@guthlac$ uname -srpi 
FreeBSD 5.4-RELEASE i386 GENERIC 
haeleth@guthlac$ pwd 
/usr/src/sys 
haeleth@guthlac$ find . -name *.c -or -name *.h -exec grep "belong here" {} \; 
* XXX doesn't really belong here I guess... 
* This doesn't really belong here, but I can't think of a better 
* XXX doesn't really belong here I guess... 
* XXX FIXME: probably does not belong here 
* XXX FIXME: probably does not belong here 
/* XXX FIXME this does not belong here */ 
* XXX these don't really belong here; but for now they're

Code:
 
edwin@zaphod:~/tmp$ grep "belong here" openbsd/* -R 
openbsd/src/sys/dev/ic/lpt.c:/* XXX does not belong here */ 
openbsd/src/sys/dev/isa/wt.c:/* XXX: These don't belong here really */ 
openbsd/src/sys/dev/isa/mcd.c:/* XXX does not belong here */ 
openbsd/src/sys/dev/usb/ulpt.c:/* XXX This does not belong here. */ 
openbsd/src/sys/dev/sbus/cs4231.c:      /* XXX doesn't really belong here... */ 
openbsd/src/sys/ufs/lfs/lfs_vnops.c:    /* this doesn't belong here */ 
openbsd/src/sys/ufs/ufs/ufs_vnops.c:    /* this doesn't belong here */ 
openbsd/src/sys/ufs/ext2fs/ext2fs_vnops.c:      /* this doesn't belong here */ 
openbsd/src/sys/uvm/uvm_glue.c: * XXXCDC: do these really belong here? 
openbsd/src/sys/arch/vax/vsa/lk201.c: * Initialize the mouse.  (Doesn't really belong here.) 
openbsd/src/sys/arch/alpha/tc/scc.c: * XXX does not really belong here. 
openbsd/src/sys/arch/sparc/dev/cs4231.c:        /* XXX doesn't really belong here... */ 
openbsd/src/sys/arch/sparc/include/ctlreg.h:/* XXX: does not belong here */ 
openbsd/src/sys/arch/mac68k/mac68k/machdep.c:/* Does this belong here? */ 
openbsd/src/sys/netbt/bt.h: * XXX FIXME: probably does not belong here 
openbsd/src/sys/netbt/bt.h: * XXX FIXME: probably does not belong here 
openbsd/src/sys/netbt/rfcomm_var.h:/* XXX FIXME this does not belong here */ 
openbsd/src/sys/netccitt/x25.h:#define IEEEPROTO_802LLC 3       /* doesn't belong here */

Currently exist at the FreeBSD and OpenBSD source codes comments that says, 'Does this belong here?'.

If exist currently at the FreeBSD and OpenBSD source codes comments that says, 'Does this belong here?', I probably will add code in FreeBSD and OpenBSD source codes that inspire confidence.

We're clearly complete suckers... thanks for pointing this out. I await your commits...

(p.s. actually grep'ing current, up-to-date source code would have assisted you greatly in your trolling efforts)

FreeBSD (but 5.4?), maybe, OpenBSD, not likely. Made me think of this quote from a Forbes article (6/16/05):

Quote:
Lok Technologies , a San Jose, Calif.-based maker of networking gear, started out using Linux in its equipment but switched to OpenBSD four years ago after company founder Simon Lok, who holds a doctorate in computer science, took a close look at the Linux source code.

"You know what I found? Right in the kernel, in the heart of the operating system, I found a developer's comment that said, 'Does this belong here?'" Lok says. "What kind of confidence does that inspire? Right then I knew it was time to switch."

Here is the original comment to a slashdot article about a forbes article which is the copy and paste source for the first part of the OP which refers to FreeBSD 5.4-release: https://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid...9&cid=12843812

Note the date... 2005...

And the copy and paste source of the OpenBSD related "content" from the gentoo Linux forums (7th post down)... also from 2005.

https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-...-start-50.html

So, it's at least 13 year old OpenBSD source (around 3.7-release)...

And the OP is almost entirely the product of copy and paste. They have not run those grep commands against OpenBSD or FreeBSD source code, at the time the post was made.

pompous ninja, my friend, if BSD doesn't inspire confidence in you what does? Windows?

I have 5 laptops running FreeBSD and 2 OpenBSD boxen. If I didn't have confidence or faith in them I wouldn't be doing so.
