As a side note, there is a techinical oppotunity to have wscons Xserver
for HX (PMAGB-B) equipped DECstation 3MAX+ and 3MIN.
I made NetBSD/pmax to have GENERIC_SOFT_INTERRUPT snatching codes
from NetBSD/algor. The resulting pmax kernel seems work well over 10days.
This paves the way to have WSCONS kernel for 3MAX+ and 3MIN as
these models have the same SCC design as DEC3000. (in fact WSCONS
pmax had been useful in some degree before ZSIOASIC code was switched
to use GENERIC_SOFT_INTERRUPT)
