The kernel boots. I don't have a dmesg because I wasn't able to get
the machine on the network to copy data off, or mount the disk and
copy the dmesg. But I synched on Monday night and built a kernel, and
booted it (-current).
I am building a full system now so I can netboot current and ensure
that it finishes booting to a login prompt.
Shall we test in netbsd-3? What other kind of work needs to be done in
order to close the pr?
