SUNWcsd: failed to add pxb_bcm to /etc/name_to_major:
(pxb_bcm) already in use as a driver or alias.
This issue can occur in the following situations.
Installing patch 122027-04 to -07 without patch 118833-18 (or greater) already installed on the system.
Because patch 122027-04 to -07 do not include a name_to_major file, and only have a driver_aliases file, it causes an inconsistency and add_drv(1M) fails to add the entry to the /etc/name_to_major during the patch installation of 118833-18 (or greater) and/or 122027-08.
