Re: Any O2 R10K patches I should try?

Seeing all the activity lately has prompted me to shove things off
the worktops and pull out and dust off the SGI equipment here.
My first attempts have been with R10K O2s. I can boot then with
the latest -current. But networking will cause these machines to
reset after only 15-20 seconds. cvs, ftp and scp have been tried.
I've checked the mailing list archives, but don't see this addressed
particularly in the last few months.
I have an r5k O2, mec works just fine - I'd suspect the r10k needs
some additional cache flushes / invalidates. An off the shelf PCI
ethernet card might do the trick too.
Was anyone futzing with the R10K code that I can do any testing
for? I suspect that the Octane support isn't possible yet, as I
see no mention of that either.
I've also noticed the R10Ks don't recognize memory over 256M. Is this
still a limitation in the port for O2s?
That's still a limitation on all O2 variants, although there might be
a way to access an additional 512MB without going LP64.
If you have an r5k O2 please install -current, grab a very recent
kernel and try my X stuff - it still got problems but a few things
are usable and speed isn't bad either, even though I didn't really
pay attention to that yet.
