Architecture: sparc64
Machine: sparc64
        Neither "boot -c" nor "boot netbsd -c" boot into the userconf
        mode on sparc64.

        The boot code I tested this with was not from 6.0_BETA proper,
        but rather quite a bit older than that, of 5.99.38 vintage:

NetBSD 6.0_BETA (TORBIDINSU) #0: Thu May 17 17:55:31 CEST 2012

        (This is excerpted from PR 46461 and reported separately, as

        Do a "boot -c", watch it just continue as if no "-c" had been
        given, even though "options USERCONF" is part of the kernel

        Sorry, don't know.
        I'll build and install an ofwboot with _DEBUG to see if that
        can reveal some more information.
