(Actually, it's really my adjacent Alpha, but that doesn't have email
configured, and it's 1.4I)

	You can't compile the 'advansys' driver on alpha; it says

../../../../dev/ic/advlib.c:1321: warning: cast from pointer to integer of different size

	and of course it's correct; we're converting a pointer to int32, which
	may not be portable.  ;-)

	Uncomment the Advansys driver and try to build a kernel on alpha.
	I don't know.
