Updated Network Automagic Prototype (SUNWnwam) for snv_53 onwards

Darren Moffat
Senior Software Architect

The OpenSolaris Network Automatic Project has updated their
prototype to version 0.4 for OpenSolaris builds snv_53 & snv_54 (and later). In snv_53 the packet filtering hooks project was integrated, this mean't that SUNWnwam needed to be update to not know about the svc:/network/pfil service anymore since it was removed. In snv_54 there will be the new Nemo/GLDv3 WiFi framework and updated Atheros [ath(7D)] driver, that required a change to how netprofd detected wireless interfaces were available for use.

See this email thread on the project discussion alias for the announcement of the updated version.
