     vides a standard tape drive interface as described in mtio(4) with the
     following exceptions:

     1.	  There is only one density.

     2.	  Only the “raw” interface is supported.

     3.	  The MTIOCTOP ioctl(2) is limited.  In particular, the command, MTFSR
	  is not supported.

     4.	  The MTIOCGET ioctl is not supported.
