This is old post but no one have answered it yet. I have two
Netstations 1000. Here is my full dmesg output:

WARNING: preposterous clock chip time

I boot directly from NFS with staticaly selected ip/gw in netstation
bios and kernel

   options        NFS_BOOTSTATIC_MYIP=3D"\"\""
   options        NFS_BOOTSTATIC_GWIP=3D"\"\""
   options        NFS_BOOTSTATIC_MASK=3D"\"\""
   options        NFS_BOOTSTATIC_SERVADDR=3D"\"\""
   options        NFS_BOOTSTATIC_SERVER=3D"\"\""

Unfortunately in practise port looks unusable for me. Something is
broken with NIC. With root/swap mounted over NFS I'm unable to compile
anything bigger. It panics like this:

  trap: kernel write DSI trap @ 0x93810094 by 0x13d82c (DSISR
0x42000000,  err=3D14)
  panic: trap
  syncing disks... trap: kernel write DSI trap @ 0x93810094 by
0x149b04   (SISR 0x42000000, err=3D14)
  panic: trap
  dumpsys: TBD

  trap: kernel ISI by 0xfff019ac (SRR1 0x40000030)
  panic: trap
  dumpsys: TBD

or just

  panic: tp->t_lastm =3D=3D NULL
  syncing disks...

or sometimes with "stressful jobs" like extracting Perl through pkgsrc
NIC timeouts - kernel is running but process idles and I get this:

  pcn0: device timeout (txfree 504 txsfree 128)

If anyone is interested I can answer detailed questions. I will
recompile kernel with ddb soon and fill PR.
