Ok, makes sense. Do you have the impression that the interrupts are working

I ask because I tried the kernel on my Efika today. It reaches the boot-
prompt and even reports the name and dimensions of my hard disk. But there
are also messages about "lost interrupts".

Unfortunately I had to boot the kernel directly, because I couldn't find out
why ofwboot failed. If reports "root addr=" and waits forever.

Strange, I'm sure I had it working last year. I have set "boot-protocol" in
OFW to "dhcp". Other settings don't even allow me to load ofwboot over the
net... :|
