The description "clock0 at mainbus0" is for DS3100, not for
DS5000/200.  The confusing point is kernel requires clock has to be
configured with IOASIC for DS5000/200 as if it has the circuit.

BTW, I finished to build my own kernel from NetBSD/1.3 release source
code with 1.3_BETA distribution without any trouble, and it runs well
on DS5000/33.
