 thanks for looking at the issue. It's been a while... I ended up getting an
 external wlan access point in place of the pcmcia card, and the machine has
 morphed into an SS20 in the meantime.
 I can drop in the nell, and try a -current kernel; in fact, I have a
 sort-of-current installation around from testing the waters, since it looks
 like netbsd-5 on sparc-mp is never going to happen, and things from a newer
 version of pf(4) to wapbl look tempting. Fine-grained locking changes have
 broken appletalk support on many ethernet interfaces, though - not le(4)
 but hme(4).
 OTOH, I'd definitely be interested in netbsd-4 patches, since that would be
 more of a drop-in replacement, pf compatible and all. Plus, it's the last
 usable release on sparc-mp. Just tell me if the patches are much of an
