netbsd-6 and large memory systems


Although I don't have any real systems with more than 128 megs of memory, I was playing with simh and noticed that while netbsd-5 has no problem with 512 megs, a netbsd-6 kernel panics:

simh only allows powers of 2 memory sizes, so I can only say that netbsd-6 boots with 256 megs but not with 512.
