I have a 4000/105A (KA53-A) that also gets the console on the right port
with the patch

I also need

to get past initialization of asc0. Unfortunately I don't get much

asc0 at vsbus0 csr 0x26000080 vec 510 ipl 17 maskbit 1
asc0: NCR53C94, 25MHz, SCSI ID 6
scsibus0 at asc0: 8targets, 8 luns per target
Kernalized RAIDframe activated
scsibus0: waiting 2 seconds for devices to settle...

and that's it. It won't go any further.

There might be some kind of hw error. I noticed that I couldn't boot from
the disk, so I removed it. It looked as if the boot code got hung too. It
didn't help, so maybe the disk is OK but something else SCSI is wrong.

The patches seems to work, but it also seems that both are required.

Both my 3100/38 (KA42-B) and my 4000/60 (KA46-A) makes it to multi-user
with the patches applied.
