Anyone using current on m68k? (Was: port-atari/39965: "lock_error" panic)

Anyone want to speak up? :)

I am running a netbsd-5 branch on my amiga (and am in the process of slowly doing a native build). The next time the build stops, I can boot
a -current kernel and see if that works.

        NetBSD-5 is probably close enough for this test - the issue
        has been showing up on NetBSD/atari current from before the
        netbsd-5 branch.
        Thats another good data point though - amiga and atari appear
        to be among the few m68k ports which don't use the common
        sys/arch/m68k/m68k/pmap_motorola.c and their pmap.c files
        are *very* similar, apart from a various cleanups and fixes
        to the amiga pmap.

        So... quickest shortterm fix might be to sync the atari pmap
        with the amiga one, though a better solution (tho' more effort)
        would be to switch atari to sys/arch/m68k/m68k/pmap_motorola.c...
