Re: TS7200 panic on 5.1.0

A NetBSD 5.1 stable build works on the TS-7200. Also, with some reasonably simple kernel changes -- to compliment existing support of hardware -- I added (in 5.0) control of the DIO pins via sysctl.

The TS-7200 is a cool and useful low power device. Getting this up and running introduced me to more NetBSD internals and source code; it was worth the effort.

I'll surely share everything I know about installing 5.1 (or 5.0 -- same steps) on this device. I can assure you it didn't take more than a few hours of my free time on the weekend.

I'm pretty impressed that you got this far. All my previous attempts to get
5.0 running on the TS7200 failed.

I'm one of the people (along with Joel) who responded to your post
about this six months ago, saying that 5.0 worked fine for me.  I also
gave you specific answers to your questions about how to build a kernel
for it, but I never heard back from you.  If I missed a reply from you
after your last email on Feburary 8th, 2010, then I apologize, but I
thought my reply was pretty clear.

I will reiterate my offer to help you out if you need some more
assistance; obviously I don't have unlimited time, but it _does_
work for us; it shouldn't be too much work to get it going for you.
