des should stop talking about sun_hardware
des (all 3 implementations, we seem to have...) do really scary things, like source:usr/src/uts/common/des/des_crypt.c@13196#L62
static int g_desfd = -1; #define getdesfd() (cdevsw.d_open(0, 0) ? -1 : 0) #define ioctl(a, b, c) (cdevsw.d_ioctl(0, b, c, 0) ? -1 : 0)
Luckily, they only do this under an
#ifdef _KERNEL built only in userland, or
#ifdef sun_hardware which, as best as I can tell, must have been a hardware DES implementation with a driver (at /dev/des) with a (static) major number of 11, which speaks to the age such a device must now have (as does the reference to cdevsw!)
After a little more checking to be certain this horror really is dead code, it should be removed.
Even better (perhaps as a separate bug), would be removing one of the implementations in userland, and making the code common. (better still, making the common bits of all 3 common, in src/common).
