Indeed. I'm dealing with the Alpha first, then will probably attach
the m68k. Then I will boot my DECstation (which is having transient
memory problems :-) and see if I can deal with it on the MIPS, too.
Geez, I also have my Shark to make functional again.
Well, no promises, but I'll probably go into work today to hack on it.
(Work on a Saturday?! Well, I've been having too much fun in the evenings
all week this week, so going into work might actually be a nice rest :-)
Charles actually did the syscall renaming today, but assembler code needs
to be updated, and you need to add a compat_13_machdep.c for every
MACHINE_ARCH (because the format of sigcontext changed, so sigreturn
had to be versioned).
Feel the love!
