It doesn't have uname. Sorry!
It has 32MB RAM, no strage, two NICs and a CF slot.
Kernel deads by transferring to tty with PPP with unstable com device in AirH" CF card tightly.
AirH":a kind of celler phone with 32/128kbps packet mode. It looks like com(16660) device from kernel.
1. Kernel deads in putc and kern(in kern/tty_subr.c) with tlb_handler#NOGO(va=0 spc=xxx(address in these function)).
2. Kernel deads in memmove/memcpy/bcopy(in libkern/bcopy.c) with tlb_handler#NOGO(va=0 spc=xxx(address in these function)).
3. Kernel panics by empty of mbpl or mclpl even increase buffer size of them by two or four.
#This can occors only 15 minites from boot.
Send and send with TCP tightly. It appers faster as tightness and unstableness of the line.
Orginaly,getc and p_to_b sets 0 into c_cf(member of clist) and c_cl when the buffer becomes empty. Also clalloc initializes them with 0.
I fix it "clear/initialize them with c_cs instead 0 except at clfree". And also initialize them when they are 0 in putc and b_to_p.
Then, It becomes much better. "1" was gone. But "2" and "3" still are.
