Gordon was attempting an experimental dual-sun3/sun3x bootstrap project.
The core of the detection code had to do with knowledge of some variables
in the PROM's private data area.  It looks like you are running a
bootstrap derived from this code and you've found a machine with a PROM
that doesn't have the data in the place we were looking.  (It's a hack.)
