there are GENERIC and ALPHA configurations in sys/arch/alpha/conf. A
comment in GENERIC says:
"The generic kernel on NetBSD/alpha does enough to get booted, etc., but
not much more. For a more complete kernel see the ALPHA machine
"If you add stuff to this, please add it to the ALPHA configuration, too."
This seem strange. Shouldn't GENERIC itself be a reasonably complete
Also, the request to add stuff to ALPHA was ignored several times, leading
to a situation whre ALPHA is no longer a superset of GENERIC.
Could I just merge the two and remove ALPHA?
