->I could continue it and make progress.   I'm now running
->NetBSD-current with Charles' new SCSI driver code, and that works

->have a properly functioning system, I'm now going to have to rebuild
->the world.   Sigh.

So, I guess i'm really pretty fucked up now.
I just switched includes to -current in order to test-build a kernel.
Worked fine up to eisa_machdep.c.  What the Hell is going on?
There is a configuration file for SUN_LAMP, apparently an EISA-Box,
but this seems to be completely untested.
Noone running -current on EISA?

It really hurts me, for I have now multiple Problems:

I have accidently compiled my backup-software with new includes and old
libs and kernel.  Now I cannot restore data.  My fault.

I cannot boot from floppy, because the floppy isn't bootable 

I cannot upgrade to -current because noone seems to be able to supply at least 
a minimal eisa_machdep.h.

So, in short, how long am I to wait until the one-time definite "buy this if 
you want more than 16 MB RAM" is supported again?
