Huh? I didn't follow that piece. Why isn't my 8650 fully supported? There
is no frambuffer, and there is no prom to damage on that machine.
Okay, admittedly NetBSD don't support CI either, which would be nice on
that machine, but then again, there exist a large bunch of other I/O
options not supported either...
Do we have to support *all* existing I/O options to say that we have full
support for a machine?
