Just to add to the archive, I'm running /sparc on a SS5/170 Transtec

mainbus0 (root): SUNW,SPARCstation-5
cpu0 at mainbus0: FMI,MB86904 @ 110 MHz, on-chip FPU
cpu0: physical 16K instruction (32 b/l), 8K data (16 b/l) cache NOT enabled for 4/0 cpu/mmu combination

Seems to run OK, in 2 weeks the machine hasn't crashed.
