CVS commit: src

Module Name:    src
Committed By:   he
Date:           Wed Jan 21 14:43:14 UTC 2009

Modified Files:
        src/distrib/cats/ramdisk: Makefile list
        src/distrib/notes/cats: hardware
        src/sys/arch/cats/conf: INSTALL

Log Message:
Pare down the size of the INSTALL kernel images.  This was done by:

1) Removing chio, rcmd, restore, scsictl, shutdown and slattach
   from the ramdisk images
2) Removing the isp* driver from the INSTALL kernel configs
3) Reducing the memory disk and ramdisk size back from 4400 to 4200 blocks

As a result, also remove mention as QLogic ISP controllers as being
supported by the installation.

With this, the INSTALL kernel images should once again be usable;
the firmware apparently imposes a size limit around 5MB on the files
it will load.

Longer-term, this port probably ought to get it's own stand-alone boot
loader, so that it might use e.g. loadable modules.
