Oh, NOW I am really jealous.  OpenFirmware for Alpha.  That's just cool.

Now, that this means is that there is probably no SRM console available
for this system.  I bet it's nothing like a normal Alpha systype.

It would be pretty neat to add support for OpenFirmware to NetBSD/alpha,
BUT the problem would be that the OpenFirmware probably does not have
OSF/1 PALcode in it, and thus we are out of luck :(
