It will require some customization for the X704 chip (we do software
TLB handling differently than the 603, there will need to be some
code to handle the onboard L2, and we have some processor control SPRs
that should be set for best performance).  Some of it may just fall
out by having OFW do the right thing during it's startup before
booting NetBSD.  It's on my list of things to do.
