Just somewhat out of curiosity, how far along is the 68LC040 floating point
emulation support? I've seen messages saying it's almost done, and some
saying it's a long way off. I have a Performa 637CD; unlike others, I'm not
waiting on IDE support because I have a usable external SCSI drive. I've
loaded NetBSD on this HD, and it boots (even multi-user), but practically
everything I run segfaults (including ls, pwd, and ps), with occasional
illegal instruction errors thrown in. I've tried GENERIC-9 and GENERIC-22
as kernels.

Apologies if this has already been asked; I must have missed it.

Also, whenever I tried running fsck on my mostly-broken installation, fsck
said that it couldn't write to certain blocks on the disk when I tried to
mark the filesystem clean. Huh? Is this related to the FPE bug?
