COMPAT_ULTRIX (mips) works fine which I recently discovered after shuffling
some disks and NetBSD8 mounted the ULTRIX disk as /

This more likely means that it was an old UFS disk that we do support by
default in our UFS/FFS code, but I hardly see how this could be related to

Which MIPS are you talking about by the way? Pmax I guess? Because
COMPAT_ULTRIX is disabled on the majority of our MIPSs.

Not that I have terribly much use for it (except maybe maple) but I would
still like it to be kept in.

I would tend to think that a good reason needs to go a bit farther than just
"I'd like to keep it in"...

When it comes to Maple, it is already available on Linux, and we do have

In fact, nowadays, the vast majority of proprietary binaries compiled on
UNIX-like systems are available on Linux, and we do support Linux emulation,
so we're covered for the most part.
