Default NTFS enabled by default in -current

Given a number of disparaging comments made about OpenBSD's NTFS support of late, the following commit caused me to chuckle:

http://marc.info/?l=openbsd-cvs&m=128396194505847&w=2

I have noticed in the last few weeks a number of commits made related to NTFS. Maybe its day has arrived.

Currently in -release & -stable, users have to manually enable NTFS support within GENERIC followed by recompiling the kernel. What the commit above does is enable support without need of recompiling.

This is a typical practice by OpenBSD's developers. Several new features under development may already be present in any given release, but not enabled because sufficient stability has not been attained.

Note to those salivating: this is work done in 4.8-current meaning that whatever refinements are taking place now will not be available in November's official release of OpenBSD 4.8-release. Work taking place now will be publicly available in May 2011's release of OpenBSD 4.9-release.
