   What exactly don't you understand about it?

I'm asking if there is logic to the split up, if there isn't, each
change should be in a seperate ChangeLog entry.  If there is, please
explain such logic.

   I checked it by verifying against GNU Mach's build system.

Because it is used from what I can see.  If you do not know why you
are removing a file, don't remove it.

   I mean all places where the macro is used; `NHD' was defined in
   i386/bogus/hd.h to zero, now I adopted all the places where `NHD'
   was used in the code to the case of it being defined to zero.  I'm
   open to hear suggestions for better wording, of course, but I'm not
   yet convinced that ``callees'' is more appropriate.

`Updated all references.'.  Please read the GNU Coding Standards, they
have all of this, including older ChangeLog entries.
