Well, the consensus answer to my "does anyone have soft updates working
on their NetBSD/alpha system" question appears to be a solid "YES."
However, all the responses I saw appeared to indicate folks running on
something other than DEC 3000-based systems.
So, is there anyone running NetBSD/alpha on DEC 3000/300 hardware that
has soft updates enabled and working on their system?
To recap, on mine, I get:
fatal kernel trap:
trap entry = 0x2 (memory management fault)
a0 = 0x0
a1 = 0x1
a2 = 0x0
pc = 0xfffffc0000433efc
ra = 0xfffffc0000433e48
curproc = 0xfffffc0000d3a708
pid = 4, comm = ioflush
syncing disks... panic: lockmgr: locking against myself
dumping to dev 8,1 offset 158451
dump 112 111 110 [[etc...]]
This is running on a recent -current.
