Import of snapshot of nastore3 code. Includes kernel code for dmfs, dmfs
user utilities, ms66 import and export, vvm, and volman. Also includes
makefile magic to automatically generate .tgz source files from the source.
Solaris support a bit of a question as zoularis is not working at the
moment.

The vaultrc or Vault Repository Controller is a server for the NAStore
voldaemon that communicates with human operators to satisfy volume
mount and move requests. It is basically a clone of the original
vault controller, the mantprc (now called protorc), with an added 
feature: it can talk to a vault database server which can talk to 
a bar-code reading 'gun' that is basically a PC.  Communication 
between the vaultrc and the database server is by RPC. If the vaultrc 
cannot contact the server, its operation is the same as the mantprc.

The database server hostname is defined in vaultrc.c:

	char	server[] = "splatter;
