Bertram's NetBSD 1.2D VS3100 kernel

And everything else came from a recent snapshot on

VAXstation 3100/30 (KA42-A  V1.3), SCSI/SCSI disk controller
VAXstation 3100/30 (KA42-A  V1.6), SCSI/SCSI disk controller
VAXstation 3100/38 (KA42-B  V1.5), SCSI/SCSI disk controller


No SCSI hard drives are connected, though the M38 has a SCSI floppy drive.
Also, the kernel gets confused when intializing the SCSI controllers in
the VS3100's which have either the SCSI/ST506 disk controller, or no disk
controller at all. Each of the systems were nebooted.
