Re: port-sgimips/53378: Unable to Load RAMDISK kernel newer than NetBSD 6.1.5 on Sgi Indy.

Is this a limitation in the boot PROM rather than a NetBSD bootloader
(the "doesn't fit in a FreeMemory area" doesn't seem familiar from the
NetBSD source tree)?

A couple of (probably very obvious) thoughts to give more breathing
room would be to compress the kernel and then prepend code to
decompress and execute, or have a generic option for any kernel to be
able to process dhcp options 66/67 to specify a TFTP server and
filename from which to load the ramdisk...
