I'm current looking into PR port-amd64/35532 which is about the lack of
RAIDframe support in NetBSD-amd64 4.0_BETA2 INSTALL media.

Fixing it should only require pulling up these two changes:

That does however cause an overflow of the bootfloppy:

This does however not happen when I build NetBSD-current. I've checked
for difference between "src/sys/arch/amd64/conf/INSTALL" in both
branches but there none. Any ideas which change might be missing
in "netbsd-4"?
