I'm wondering if I should port Zaurus under NetBSD/hpcarm or create a new
port. Reasons to start a new port "NetBSD/zaurus":
- Different CPU/hardware so at least different machdep.c and start.S
are needed (and a different bootloader!).
- hpcarm is advertised as "Intel StrongARM based Windows CE PDA machines",
which the Zaurus isn't.
- The Zaurus is not just one "type", there are various models, so a new
port can be extended to support more models.
Is it ok to introduce NetBSD/zaurus for those reasons?
