The memory maps of PReP and CHRP differ. The PReP memory map is
hardcoded into src/sys/arch/prep/include/bus.h. Richard wrote that his
system uses a CHRP map. So he can't use port-prep without breaking
support for all other PReP machines. Also: port-prep needs the Residual
Data that only (?) a PReP firmware supplies.=20

port-evbppc seems to be the best home for Richards system.
