The third one is "RESTART". Please post here if you ever figure
out what exactly the behaviour of AUTO_ACTION is; it's not described
terribly well in the architecture manual. In fact, I'm sure I used
BOOT and a `halt' or `shutdown -h' under NetBSD still brought me
to an SRM prompt, but I don't have time to test this right now.
