From a look at the main board I can see two chips labeled "Motorola
MCM69P737TQ4". Google tels me this are "128K x 36 Bit Pipelined BurstRAM
Synchronous Fast Static RAM". So it looks like this CPU has off chip L2

Further investigation: src/sys/arch/powerpc/oea/cpu_subr.c version 1.14
works, version 1.15 causes the trap. Due to ENOCLUEABOUTPPC I can't fix
this, but I'll happily test new revisions of that file.
