VAX rom patches - VAXstation 2000 SCSI boot, KA420 > 1GB boot

I had some extra A4 pages with a VAXstation 2000 manual which covered
a preview PK2K kit for VMS, bootloader and ROM to allow use of the
VAXstation 2000 SCSI controller for more than just tapes.

Rough scan at http://sync.absd.org/vax/VAX-PK2K-preview-kit.pdf (the
originals will be sent to someone who can do a better job)

The pages led me to http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/vms/ which includes some goodies:
- http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/vms/pk2k - uVAX-2k SCSI patches with source
for boot roms, VMB & VMS
- http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/vms/ka420 - ROM patches for KA420/KA430 boot
from >1GB disks
- http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/vms/dk-552/ - VMS 5.2 patch to allow to
accept more SCSI disk devices

(Starting a new thread in case there is (slightly) more general
interest for anyone interested in using the onboard uVAX-2K SCSI
controller more more than tapes (OK, OK, for anyone not running NetBSD
on their uVAX-2K interested in etc etc) - have cross posted to cctalk
& port-vax - hopefully not violating any conventions there)
