A while back, I was complaining about the kernel on the
install13_ALPHA.fs floppy image crashing immediately upon ifconfig'ing
up de1 on an AS600.

Well, I've finally had time to play with it, and the problem appears
to be isolated to the kernel on that floppy.  Neither the generic
kernel from the last 1.3-ALPHA snapshot (NetBSD 1.3_ALPHA (GENERIC)
#2: Sat Nov 15 17:04:50 PST 1997) nor a kernel built from this
morning's source tarballs exhibits the problem.
