I got no report, but here is the answer to the question anyway: all ports using
sys/arch/powerpc/oea/pmap.c were affected.
rev. >= 1.22 should fix the problem.
argh :-( my G4 hung after i started working it hard... :-( same
style as far as i could tell - i may have been able to drop to
ddb, but as i was running X that didn't work... port 22 connected
but gave no SSH banner, as always...
