Someone once told me the LK-401 (and other lk-201 successors) powers
up in an LK-201 compatible mode. That way you can use them as
direct hardware replacements for LK-201s -- say, that died while under
maintenance. If true, the NetBSD code needs to be just a little
smarter about probing for lk-401s instead of lk-201s.
