Ok, a little background: I'm in the process of trying to upgrade NetBSD
1.5.2 to 1.6_BETA4 on my AlphaStation 600 5/266. A GENERIC 1.6_BETA4 kernel
works fine, but *EVERY* non-generic kernel I have built panics. Here is the

I don't see what the problem is in the config file. I generated it with
adjustkernel, and removed the commented lines.

Any ideas? I'm about to try -current on this machine, since I really want
a *recent* NetBSD for it, and GENERIC is way more bloat than I need.

The kernel configuration in question follows:
