Definitely their own code for the file system, and probably whole
other chunks, although AFAICT, 4.4BSD (?) was used for the TCP/IP stack.

AFAICT, NetBSD/alpha was only used to get the OnTAP alpha port going.
It's still cool to see NetBSD mentioned in NetApp's OnTAP documentation,
even though they don't use Alpha CPUs any more.
