	sun 4/110 w/ 16MB and 312MB SCSI.

	Booting a kernel (from disk or net) that is using the scsi
	disk as root, the machine stops after "root on sd0a" message.
	If the kernel has ddb/debug/diagnostic, it prints this:
		Process (pid 1) received signal 11
	(this is printed continously)
	Booting the same kernel with root on nfs works fine.
	This problem appeared with the sun4m integration.

	Attempt to boot a 4/110 from SCSI disk.

	I don't have one.
