Hi all,

I'm aware that vax may not be considered very stable right now, but at least a kernel builds again. This looks to be the work of Matt Thomas so Matt, if you're reading this, thank you very much!

On to the problem. A -current kernel will begin booting, but as soon as it prints the memory sizes it drops right back to the ROM monitor. It looks like:

VAXstation 3100/m{30,40}
cpu: KA41/42
cpu: Enabling primary cache, secondary cache
total memory = 8060 KB
avail memory = 6076 KB

and then I immediately get returned to the monitor. The next line should be

I committed a fix for this.

Nice work Matt.
I'm trying a build now.
What else are you up to?
I've noticed the TC comments. Have you fixed something else?
