I just wanted to try a MP kernel again, but the last output is this:
crypto: driver 0 registers alg 11 flags 0 maxoplen 0
crypto: driver 0 registers alg 18 flags 0 maxoplen 0
pad: requested 1 uni
Thats were the serial console stopped and there was no way to break into ddb.
There are 3 dmesg outputs, which can be found on ftp.netbsd.org:~veego/
dmesg.boot.4_99_31 working MP kernel 4.99.31
dmesg.boot.4_99_45 broken MP kernel 4.99.45
dmesg.boot.non_mp working non MP kernel 4.99.45
The 4.99.45 was updated 25-Dec-2007 around 14:00 UTC.
I think the 4.99.31 was from 05-Oct-2007.
Btw, there are quite a few devices which don't use pmf, where it doesn't
matter that much because this is not a laptop:
Devices without power management support: fdc0 lpt0 joy0 nfsmbc0 nfsmb0 nfsmb1
