System: NetBSD kolvir 1.0A NetBSD 1.0A (KOLVIR) #624: Wed Aug 9 07:38:58 EDT 1995 jtk@pattern:/u1/NetBSD-current/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/KOLVIR i386

<sys/reboot.h> has a VAX specific comment in it.

read the file:
 * Arguments to reboot system call.  These are passed to boot program
 * in r11, and on to init.

r11 is indeed where things are passed in 4.3BSD on a VAX, but I don't
know if that's true for NetBSD on the VAX, and certainly there is no r11
in many of the NetBSD ports.

excise the specific register reference.
