A quick report of the success of the latest kernel source changes
with regard to my machine locking up every 4-6 hours. It has been
up for 24hours with no problem.  The only nit that still seems to
still be happening are the silo overflows.  I have 18 log entries
in the past 24 hours. What seems to have helped that some is the
addition of the second line in this snipit from isa_machdep.c.

     * There are network and disk drivers that use free() at interrupt
     * time, so imp > (net | bio).
    imask[IPL_IMP] |= imask[IPL_NET] | imask[IPL_BIO];
    imask[IPL_TTY] |= imask[IPL_NET];

The following is a snipit from 'iostat' on a 2 second interval while
doing an NFS read over the 28.8 connection. Baudrate is locked at

BTW - Didn't someone post some patches awhile back to make 'iostat' 
work for SCSI disks?
