What's Linux doing that we can't do?
(It's a trick question)
Is it just a matter of design, where ARC doesn't have some things
that make life easy (portable?) for NetBSD?
Is there more ARC information (docs) available now than when port-alpha
Is there anything the Linux boot code couldn't show us how to handle?
