System: NetBSD poseur 1.4T NetBSD 1.4T (ALPHA) #0: Wed Feb 23 10:20:39 PST 2000 mjacob@poseur:/usr/src/sys/arch/alpha/compile/ALPHA alpha

System panics at mount time with a MMU (bad pointer) fault:

fatal kernel trap:

    trap entry = 0x2 (memory management fault)
    a0         = 0xfffffe00108d0000
    a1         = 0x1

    curproc    = 0xfffffc0006f4e9b8
        pid = 334, comm = mount_ffs

Compile a kernel with MAXPHYS set to 1024KB and MAXBSIZE set to 64KB.
Create a filesystem on a large CCD (2 x 150GB) with 64KB blocks and
16KB frags:
brunner > root newfs -b 65536 -f 16384 /dev/rccd0c >/tmp/x

Mount it.

brunner > root mount /dev/ccd0c /storage
