The 2.0.2 netbsd-GENERIC kernel wouldn't boot (for me) on a z50. I
had to apply darkstar's patches to get it to work. 3.0 is still in
beta, so I imagine these issues will be resolved before it is
I have also found that the netbsd-2 branch (which will become
netbsd-2.1) wouldn't boot on my z50. I didn't check, but it is
probably the same mipsX_subr.S issue.
