Note that the new driver source is there, but the config files
do not use it yet (we wanted to beat on it for a while first).
If you want to build a kernel with the new si driver, copy the
GENERIC config to SCSI_TEST and change the "si" lines:
	si? at ...
to look like this:
	ncr_si? at ...

There is a pre-built SCSI_TEST kernel available here:
	cd /pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-1.1-ALPHA/sun3
	get _netbsd_gen.gz

That location also has a set of binaries (pre-release)
in case anyone would like to try them out.  Please let me
know ASAP if you discover problems with them...
