Re: 4.0.1/sun3 broken?

It is, especially recently.  I now have the -3/60 I quoted the dmesg
from doing a diskless build of the world; I'll have to see whether
things are too bloated for it to complete in finite time.  I've also
got a NeXT slab which has other issues but which I may soon have
working similarly; it's got more RAM and, while the difference is not
large (the -3/60 has 24 megs, the NeXT, 32), it doesn't take much to
have a big effect if it makes the difference between thrashing and not.
For the purposes that prompted me to start on this, pretty much any 68k
NetBSD will do fine.

Well, you're certainly welcome.  I'm glad you had fun.  That's really
the major reason to play with things like sun3s these days, after all.
