The current kernel comes up fine without any patches, so that is positive.
Ethernet doesn't work though.

aeintr() is still getting called once during network initialization.  After
that "ae0: device timeout" messages are displayed every minute or so.

The only other two things that I can think of that are different between
current and Brad's earlier version is that he had:

    via_reg(VIA2, vDirA) = 0xc0;
    via_reg(VIA2, vBufA) = via_reg(VIA2, vBufA) | 0x3f;

in via.c.  Don't know what effect the above would have had, if any.  Also,
the remap_rom() in machdep.c changed.

I am assuming that the brad.tar file on is the latest version of
his patches that correspond to his kernel.
