where's jason's bwx kernel? i'd like to try it. i'm still building
out of 1.3.2... is it worthwhile to get a high reve tree...
Thanks ross.. i know its happening near the _mem_read_1's, but don't have
the entire traceback.. if sp is hosed, is the old sp copied somewhere so
i can get at it? ie: <rn> <- sp during a check? i know its during
ahc_probe, ... so i can isolate it a bit more...
