   That is an obsessive idea ;^)  I don't have strong opinions either
way.  I do like that currently "sba" boot parameters change the behavior
of the "sba" code.  So while it makes sense that it probably should be
called iocpagesize, I'm reluctant to do it piece-wise.  These parameters
are intentionally not documented anywhere outside of the code, so I
don't think changing them at some later point will cause too many
problems.  Thanks,
