This is for a netbooted (no ofwboot.elf, just the kernel) B&W G3.

1. The last few -current kernels I have built don't give any output 
to my screen (I get a blank white screen). The kernel boots OK

ofb0 at pci0 dev 16 function 0: ATI Technologies product 0x5245
ofb0: 1280 x 1024, 8bpp
wsdisplay0 at ofb0: console (std, vt100 emulation)
