Unfortunately, NetBSD really requires an MMU.
However, let me note that FPGAs generally cost more than inexpensive
embedded microprocessors that *do* have MMUs.

Repeating, though, CPUs implemented as FPGAs are usually more costly
some hard CPUs with MMUs, like a number of low end embedded MIPS and
