<sigh>. I've been real busy, but I have to do this. I'll build a generic
kernel tomorrow and post on ftp.netbsd.org.
Two unoffical patchkits and a generic kernel will be available when 1.4 is
released, and will be part of -current. Hopefully, if I sort out the
vm_mmap problems with the X11R6 Xpxpmax server, that'll be ready (albeit
in a slow form) within a couple of days. Anybody know why writes from
userspace to vm_mmap'ed memory on the pmax seem to get cached, and hence
don't show up in kernel space for a while?
