Well, first of all, I'll switch the DEC 3000s to use the new SCC
driver by default, and leave people who want to use modems to define
OLD_SCC_DRIVER instead.  Then we can get the attachment stuff worked
out for the new SCC driver.  This will take care of the people who
want to use graphics consoles on the DEC 3000s, too.

(And then I'll corner Studenmund and get the control line nonsense
worked out in the new SCC driver so we can finally shoot the old
one in the head :-)

Thaks :-) .. man, I'm looking forward to seeing an 8200 run MP finally --
this is something I've been working on for ... too many years now.  (I first
wrote the Alpha CPU spinup code in ... 1998.)
