No idea. But the Apollo cpu boards I've have read about have broken bus
timing and thus are do fail during the heavy mixture of cache pushes and
DMA transfers a virtual memory operating system like NetBSD creates.
We've had a user Apollo 3060 user who hacked his kernel into running (well,
creeping) with cache off only. Otherwise his machine would crash sooner or
