I just compiled a GENERIC kernel, and it failed to netboot. I'm posting as
someone else reported a similar-sounding problem.

Size somehow seems to matter. The first kernel, netbsd-tanis0, hung in
ofwboot in the second set of digits (i.e. after it had printed what looks
like the bss number). The second one (with stuff pruned) seemed to boot
ok, but didn't actually boot.

tanis> size /netbsd-tanis*
text    data    bss     dec     hex     filename
3003432 136336  267300  3407068 33fcdc  /netbsd-tanis0
2597668 127368  256032  2981068 2d7ccc  /netbsd-tanis1

I'll see how an even smaller one does.

Take care,
