That's the first thing that comes to mind for me too, but it's less
"sun4c" and more "OB version doesn't understand it".

If NetBSD scanned the SBus directly instead of depending on the ROM
code to set everything up, we could support a lot of things that don't
work at present.

But, of course, that opens a different can of worms.
