 I tried this on IIsi and it died at pretty much the same place as
the other mrg kernels:

NetBSD 1.0 (GENERIC) #7: Sat Apr  8 17:07:39 EDT 1995
mrg: 'Mac IIsi class ROMs' rom glue, tracing off, debug off, silent traps
adb: bus subsystem
[crash boom bang]

 It also (still reports) that I have 83mb real memory (16 is closer to the
truth, 13mb available).

 I've seen some references about drivers for MO-drives being in
-current now, and arch-independent.. could someone verify this,
and maybe compile a -current kernel that skips the mrg init ?
