  This ROM replaces devices such as gvpscsi (now called omniscsi) and so on.

  Did you change the sbic_inhibit_sync value?  If you changed it to 1,
and the GURU ROM uses synchronous transfers, then I would expect NetBSD
to hang at that point.  [If you didn't change sbic_inhibit_sync, and
it's still 0, then I'm not sure what the problem would be.  It's
possible that the GURU ROM sets up the 33c93 in some way that is
incompatible with NetBSD, although I can't think of what it could do to
affect things.]
