Log Message:
Pull up following revision(s) (requested by he in ticket #295):
        distrib/cats/ramdisk/list: revision 1.10
        distrib/notes/cats/hardware: revision 1.6
        sys/arch/cats/conf/INSTALL: revision 1.71 via patch
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 its own stand-alone boot
loader, so that it might use e.g. loadable modules.
