    It means:

    - you have a 2940-series host adapter that uses "alad"
    - you have a 2940U2W-series host adapter that uses "blad"
    - between the two host adapters you have a total of 0 SCSI hard disks
    - both drivers have a clumsy kludge to deal with a diskless setup

    If you have no hard disks, I suspect you don't really need both "alad"
    and "blad" drivers. You probably turned them both on while casting
    about trying to figure out which driver runs your host adapter.

    Turn off the driver you don't need. Edit /etc/conf/sdevice.d/alad or
    blad, change 'Y' to 'N'. Relink.
