Early spring cleaning my docs disk, I came across the "hyperSPARC Module
Installation Guide".  Most of it just tell me how to take machines apart
and put them back together but one of the appendices mentions problems with
modules slower than 90Mhz and gives a few PROM commands to work round this
before installing the patch.

The patch is to ross625_va_int_asm() for machines running SunOS 4.1.4.

The PROM commands are :

  ok reset
  ok ross625
  ok ibuf-off
  ok 1 switch-cpu
  ok ibuff-off
  ok 0 switch-cpu


                    My other computer also runs NetBSD
