I tried the one dated Dec 4th (the current one in the tar_files
directory), using the standard GENERICAHA kernel with SCSI commented out
and the ed0 driver put on irq 15.  I've also tried with both syscons and
pccons, with no difference between either.  It is a kernel problem
though, because using this (buggy) kernel on my machine reboots under X
and with a (pretty much) stock netbsd 0.9 kernel it works fine.

Any more ideas?  My goal is to get a kernel that supports syscons and
shared libs.
