Back home now, and built a patched kernel using my R4600 box. Moved the
disk over to the R5000 box and accidently booted the GENERIC kernel
instead of the patched version. Somewhat to my surprise, that was
successful, goes multiuser and is currently compiling some test
programs. The panics I saw with the INSTALL kernel were SCSI related so
I'm going to run some disk/filesystem test programs on both the INSTALL
and GENERIC kernels to see what happens.
