Re: NetBSD 6.0 fails to boot on large server

> options PHYSMEM_MAX_ADDR="0x8000000000L"

I added this line:

options PHYSMEM_MAX_ADDR=524288

to GENERIC, built relase followed by iso-image and the boot now looks
like this (ACPI on, SMP on):

NetBSD 6.99.16 (GENERIC) #0: Sun Jan 20 10:10:52 EST 2013
total memory = 509 GB
avail memory = 495 GB
mainbus0 (root)
ACPI Warning: 32/64X FACS address mismatch in FADT -
0x79BBCF40/0x0000000079BBCF80, using 32 (20110623/tbfadt-517)
cpu0 at mainbus0 apid 0<cursor>

And at that point it hangs hard. Sending CTRL-ALT-ESC through the ILO
achieves nothing.

Booting with "ACPI no, SMP no" works, but I end up with:

warning: no /dev/console

There is a series of 13 console grabs here:

... and I'll see if I can convert some of the "unknown" things into
reals (not even the NICs show up!)
