NVMM lands in DragonFly

Aaron LI’s added NVMM, hardware acceleration for virtual machines, to DragonFly.

The version of qemu in dports is not set up to support this, yet.  Until then, you can download a prebuilt version.

Since NVMM originated on NetBSD, the NetBSD documentation page for it describes how to use it quite well.  There’s a man page in DragonFly for it too, of course.  There’s even basic machines to try.

ADM-3A and DragonFly

ADM-3A front console switches
It took me a while to figure out you have to press down on the switch, not rotate.
Correct ttys setting for ADM-3A.

So, if you find yourself in possession of an ADM-3A terminal, and want to attach it to a DragonFly machine, here is the /etc/ttys config (viewed on the ADM-3A itself of course) and the front switch settings that worked for me.

Remember, ^h deletes.
