OK, I have such a mess with blktap versions and which ones are inside of
the tree. Right now configure only allows enabling/disabling blktap1,
and blktap2 is compiled depending on the host OS version. Should I
change blktap2 to be selected on configure and disabled by default?
(just like blktap1)

Yes, this is certainly a mistake, NetBSD never had anything similar to
blktap2 AFAIK.
