hi folks.

i've recently switched sparc* to GCC 8 and will be soon
switching powerpc.  just running a few more tests to
ensure builds should work.

you'll probably need to do a clean build, though at least
tools/gcc itself will be OK.

as always, please send-pr or email me with issues related
to this.

I tried to boot a sparc64 kernel that I think was built after the switch on an Ultra 45, and it fails to find any disks. I see the same problem with a netbsd-9 branch kernel. This looks very similar to PR port-sparc64/54211, except that mine is an mtp controller. That PR was after sparc64 was switched to GCC 7, so my first instinct is the problem may be due to GCC 7 and GCC 8. I haven't had any time to do any debugging yet, but hope to work on it soon.

  OK, I was able to track down the commit that causes this failure, and it
was not obvious.  The commit was revision 1.69 of sys/dev/i2c/i2c.c.  This
resulted in attempting to configure amdtemp0 instead of gpio0.  Reverting
this change results in a working kernel - both netbsd-9 (gcc7) and
-current (gcc8).

  So far, I've only booted a new kernel.  I plan to install th whole
release on a disk to see that other things work.
