i was running a recent -8 build of my own.

i have working xorg-server 1.18.4 on ofppc when i built at 
a week or so after the switch - i checked out 20160916, and
while the kernel has nfsroot issues there, that userland
with a -current kernel works OK.

i'm looking at what changed since then and
rev 1.2 looks like something i've seen -- /dev/openfirm
hanging..  yup.  when i make /dev/openfirm go away then
it starts up fine (didn't have to change code.)
