I have placed the config files used to generate the snapshot
generic kernels on

Look in /pub/NetBSD/arch/sgimips/mrynet

There you'll find:

% ls -l ~ftp/pub/NetBSD/arch/sgimips/mrynet
total 6
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  1838 Apr 29 22:51 GENERIC
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  1841 Apr 29 22:51 GENERIC_L2

GENERIC disables L2 cache for R5K and R4600's.
GENERIC_L2 enables the L2 cache for R4000's and R4400's.

The difference between the two files is the commenting-out

	options                L2_CACHE_ACTUALLY_WORKS

You will need the patches mentioned in the snapshot notes
for the L2 cache disabling if you're running on an R5K or
