IMHO, this is all pretty stupid. If I had an old 386 sitting around, I
would want to put it into use (ie. install NetBSD on it). I don't care
how much a new machine or motherboard costs. If I have one already, I
want to use it. This is sooo stupid, there already _is_ the code for
bounce buffers, it's just that some people don't want others to have it.
Oh well, I shouldn't get into politics. Yes, I'm a happy NetBSD user,
but sometimes I get sick when I see the .. should I say, stubborness
on the mailing lists ;-)
I hope nobody takes this too personally because I'm not trying to offend
anyone. Thanks. I now return you to your normal VM/pager programming.
