  Thank you. My sup is taking for ever :-) Gotta get ksrc to hack
around with the scsi tape support.

amaterasu# mt -f /dev/rst0 status
7: unknown tape drive type

  Could it be parity? I'm using a serial console, and the moment I go
into kgdb, all bets are off. The prom *REALLY* prefers even parity.
I think kgdb either uses the prom routines, or it picks up the
settings from it. 
  Since I'm using Taylor cu, I have to ~., and then switch parities
all the time.
  Wrong parity often looks like dead system: CR has the wrong parity.
