Since Transmeta keeps the VLIW specs locked up pretty tightly, there's no
`native' port or compiler for the Crusoe's internal instruction set.
However, the firmware used with the Crusoe includes the i386 translator, so
the Crusoe is generally seen as an i386-series CPU to NetBSD and other OS's.
Yes, it works with NetBSD.
