The Linux unexec *ought* to work on NetBSD/pmax. The fact that it
doesn't is probably the result of the extra sections MIPS object files
have - .sdata and .sbss. (And maybe .reginfo). An unexec that
works on NetBSD/pmax should also work on Linux/pmax and Linux/i386.
NetBSD/Alpha actually has a different file format than NetBSD/pmax -
the Alpha uses 64-bit ELF, not 32-bit ELF. The differences are not
large, but they're apparently enough so that unexec doesn't work.
