This seem to be a PowerPC based box, that's why I talk about it
First, what makes it go under /sandpoint rather than /powerpc ?
mach/powerpc contains cpu-specific code used by (more or less) all
Are there only Mac based system under /powerpc ?
There is nothing mac-specific in arch/powerpc.
Then, I had to apply externally provided patches onto the netbsd-4
tree. There seem to exist patches for -HEAD too but I didn't try them
We'd appreciate it if you could give -current a shot - we rewrote
half of the powerpc-specific code ( like interrupt handling,
bus_space, bus_dma, PCI support and so on ) and there was a hell of a
lot of development in the rest of the kernel as well ( and userland,
like threading for instance ).
The right person to ask about sandpoint is Tohru Nishimura
(nisimura%netbsd.org@localhost) - he wrote the sandpoint-specific code and
actually made the port work properly again.
What would make the patches go into the "official" source tree ?
The first step is to actually show it to someone ;)
