  The DOStype field in the RDB PART blocks for the root partition will still
work - BSDR should still be picked for the root partition.

  I think the May 15 sources may still have a bug in the A3000/A2091 scsi
code.  Look in .../dev/ahasc.c and find the call to sbicintr(i) - that needs
to be changed to sbicintr(dev) if I remember right.

  There may be some other problems with the May 15 sources, but I can't
think of any at the moment.
