As far as the 21264, NetBSD itself should Just Work, as the PALcode will
abstract the chip sufficiently... no changes to the pmap, etc. should be
necessary at all.

...however, support for the Tsunami core logic needs to be written, as well
as the systype-specific interrupt routing code, etc.  But that probably
won't be that hard to do.  Just needs docs, and time (and, well, a board
would be nice, too :-)

If you had an 8200 and the KV6 processor boards for it, you'd probably
be able to use the EV6 core today :-)
