I don't know if it's been mentioned, but NetBSD/hp700 seems to be
running ok on the 715/100XC, which has a larger cache than the "normal"

At least the XC version is not mentioned explicitly on the hp700 Port

Here's the dmesg output of my machine running the 20020706-1.6D snapshot
with the kernel/bootloader from the 20020905 update:

NetBSD 1.6D (GENERIC) #0: Thu Sep  5 12:53:18 EDT 2002
HP9000/715/100XC (Mirage Sr.)
real mem = 128 MB (73728 reserved for PROM, 115 MB used by NetBSD)
avail mem = 106 MB
using 1664 buffers containing 6656 KB of memory
mainbus0 (root) [flex fff80000]
pdc0 at mainbus0
mem0 at mainbus0 hpa fffbf000: viper rev 0, ctrl 40400100 size 128MB
cpu0 at mainbus0 hpa fffbe000 irq 31 ipl 0: PA7100LC (Hummingbird) rev 6
cpu0: PCX-L, PA-RISC 1.1c, lev 1, cat A, 100 MHz clk
cpu0: shadows, 512K/512K D/I caches, 64 shared TLB, 8 shared BTLB
cpu0: PCX-L (CMOS-26B) floating point, rev 1

Especially notice the 512K/512K cache size :)) That's more than twice
what my Athlon XP has!

I cannot do a lot, I cannot even change my password ("who are you??")
Also ssh does not seem to start, and to use vi I need to know which
terminal type the framebuffer console uses.

Still, great work, thanks a lot for making this possible.

Any clues as to when a native toolchain will be available?
