 I am getting the same error as reported in port-sparc/27070 when
 attempting to upgrade a SPARCstation IPX with 64 MB of memory from
 NetBSD 1.4 to the NetBSD 2.0 release straight off an FTP mirror:
    SPARCstation IPX, No Keyboard
    ROM Rev. 2.6, 64 MB memory installed, Serial #2177749.
    Ethernet address 8:0:20:d:e:4a, Host ID: 57213ad5.
    Rebooting with command: net netbsd                                    
    Boot device: /sbus/le@0,c00000   File and args: netbsd
    >> NetBSD/sparc Secondary Boot, Revision 1.14

 In other words, the problem is not limited to 16 MB machines, and it's
 still present in the release.
