green light on raspberry pi 3 does not flash when using rpi3 img

The rpi3 img version of Devuan for the raspberry pi 3 now works on my machine, but the green light on the board does not flash to show disk access.  It blinks once briefly during boot and then never lights again.  It is not essential, but the flashing green light does let you know that the device is doing something.  It does flash when I use the raspbian operating system.

Since I cannot ascribe this problem to a particular package, I do not know how to use the bug reporting system for this minor problem.

Generally speaking, your system is on your mSDHC card so you wouldn't be likely to try & remove it whilst writing to it or not, & that is why you have a disk activity warning light, however, if it doesn't flash when using an external disk or pendrive, then it does need to be attended to.

@mknoop . . . parazyd doesn't frequent this forum regularly.  The best places to discuss arm stuff would be on irc at freenode #devuan-arm or https://git.devuan.org/sdk/arm-sdk where you can start an issue.
