While grepping for ifdefs I noticed a typo in the ultrix compat code that 
will result in the termio structure not being filled in correctly.

Look in:

Left as an exercise for the student ;-)

 Fixed by changing to `#ifdef notdef'.

 This buglet was brought up in the 1.2 release cycle. I thought
 it was fixed then; apparently not.

 The problem is that NetBSD doesn't provide an `VSWTCH' character to
 give to the Ultrix emulation code. The best solution is to always set
 the Ultridx VSWTCH to zero.  This is what the code with the typo did.

 The broken #ifdef has been changed to `#ifdef notdef', and the
 comment now clarifies why this feature isn't emulated.
