What does the "significant part" mean? Is the FPU-context switching bug
fixed in netbsd-6 or not?

It is fixed in netbsd-7, but 7 introduces some new instabilities for
oea-platforms (ofppc, macppc, sandpoint, etc.) which are even worse, so I
already downgraded some machines (especially servers) to 6 again. Would be
nice to have an official netbsd-6 release with the fix, but without the new
bugs. ;)
