I see it even to date on my NetBSD/sun3 system.  Mind you, the kernel
I'm running dates from mid-March, since I've been unable to get a sun3
source tree in buildable shape since then.  (And every time I try I
lose three or four days - it takes two days at best, and it usually
goes into the D-wait or everything-dumps-core failure modes at least a
couple of times before I get a full build....)
