Sure, probability of success P == 0%.

NetBSD Alpha needs the SRM console to provide the OSF/1 Palcode and also for
some console system calls made at various boot stages and by the kernel.

This issue comes up over and over again, you can set your clock by it. I was
going to say it should be in the faq, but is there and in fact
is the very first question.
