Depends on your cpus. If you have Ross Hypersparc's as in:
cpu0 at mainbus0: RT620/625 @ 100 MHz, on-chip FPU
then, no it doesn't work. These particular cpu's need some extra
help wrt cache coherency, and I don't know that anyone has the needed
docs to fix it. (I've got four of those cpu's as well ;-)
