System: NetBSD 1.2B NetBSD 1.2B (TERA) #34: Mon Dec 2 18:59:56 JST 1996 i386

  After recompiling kernel with new sources, which supped last night,
my machines refuse to boot with the message

  cpu0: xxxxxx
  real mem  = xxxxxxxx
  kmem_suballoc: bad status return of 3.
  panic: kmem_suballoc 

Changing MAXBSIZE to 16384 avoids panic (check only on first machine),
but frozen after printing 

  isa0 at pcib0.

Normally my 3c509 NIC follows that.  In that situation, [Ctrl]-[Alt]-[Esc]
does not have any effects.

My machines are:

            First one                           Second one
CPU:        Pentium Pro 200MHz                  Pentium 133MHz
MB:         ASUS P/I-P6nP5                      Spacewalker HOT-541
RAM:        128MB                               32MB
Prim. HDD:  Quantum Empire 1080S(SCSI)          Quantum Fireball 1280A(IDE)

	create new kernel and reboot.
