I've just tried your kernel on my Quadra 650, with following results:
1. When booting, the messages are slightly different:
/netbsd: intvid0 at obio0: DAFB: Monitor sense 1.
/netbsd: ite at grf0 not configured
whereas madhatter #38 prints
/netbsd: intvid0 at obio0: Internal Video
/netbsd: ite0 at grf0 (minimal console)
I'm not sure is these are of any importance, though.
2. X works in B/W. The 960512 color-X kernel still complains about modes
#80 and #83 being unavailable, so I didn't test color.
3. Built-in ethernet does not work. Same behaviour as with madhatter#38:
when I use ifconfig to set the IP number, the machine hangs completely,
the interrupt button ( ->debugger) no longer works. Reset or powercycle
is necessary to reboot. Any suggestions, or things I might try?
