Re: sun3 kernels don't work in netbsd 7, 8 or -current.

To confirm: my 3/80 is running 6.1.2.  I tried 7.1.1 GENERIC3X and ufsboot
fails to load it.

I tried removing some things from the kernel, e.g.:

  no options      KTRACE
  no options      SYSCTL_INCLUDE_DESCR

  no file-system  CD9660
  no file-system  MSDOSFS
  no file-system  MFS

  no options      NFSSERVER
  no options      WAPBL

and the resulting kernel is smaller and boots.  I'll try -current.  I think
that it makes sense to comment out more in the kernel configs.
