Re: Current kernel with http://gnats.netbsd.org/39965 and pmap patches

Actually... This could be the ATARITT kernel serial console issue popping up again. I didn't see any random garbage data on the screen this time so I didn't think that was the culprit, but other than that the failure mode is similar. I do have a null modem plugged into the serial port since I'm using ghostlink (...although I thought the issue was probably caused by the UPS that had been plugged into the other port. I hadn't had any problems booting ATARITT kernels via ghostlink recently with the UPS detached.).

Anyway, I'll try tomorrow with the ATARITT kernel again but downloaded to a local drive so I don't have anything plugged into any serial ports. If that doesn't work, I'll try a CD-ROM install using the BOOT kernel below.

Yeah, Tsutsui's kernel below boots and loads sysinst properly.  Does this
one have the same same changes to test? I have not tried using this one to
do an install yet.  It's a little easier for me to use the ATARITT kernel
since it has networking support, but I can try the install with this one
using a spare CD-ROM if necessary.

Major diffrences between ATARITT (or FALCON) and BOOT
which might affect pmap changes are:
- kernel size (due to many MI options)
- options SERCONSOLE
- options RELOC_KERNEL
- options MSGBUFSIZE

I guess the last two items require some special handling
during pmap initialization. (conversion between PA and VA etc.)
