I happened across a reference to a recent fix made by OpenBSD, I
wondered if it was relevant for NetBSD too? The entry says "An
unhandled AltiVec assist exception can cause a kernel panic."
Link is here: http://www.openbsd.org/errata40.html#013_altivec
I can see that NetBSD's trap.h already has the exception in question
defined, but I couldn't see a reference to it in trap.c. (Of course, I
don't know enough to make proper sense of the code in general.)
