I have one working, but yeah, I have some issues.
The clock interrupt is 512/s, but NetBSD wants to set HZ to 1024, so I
patched the code locally to get it right. hwrpb appearantly is the source
for this, and it lies, or something. Since I don't have any documentation
around, I can't tell any more than that.
Unfortunately I don't have two identical, functional CPUs, and so my
attempts at SMP have failed. It does boot SMP with VMS however, with two
CPUs at different clock speeds.
