I built myself a new kernel last night with new sources and a new
config.  However, on boot after detecting wd0, my screen flashes 
and goes black.  This is with an ati graphics ultra+ card.  

Paging through the manual, I notice Video port address == 0x2E8 which 
is the same address netbsd is grabbing as com3.  Current kernel claims
it detects a FIFO chip there.  

This wasn't happening with the last binaries I grabbed from sun-lamp
which was the March 7 build.  I suspect this is a new com thing.

I'm rebuilding with no com3 option and I'll see if that fixes my 
blacked out video.
