Well, here at UAB, I have an Indigo2 booting the kernel, mounting root
over NFS, and crashing. All this is done with very few changes to the
source. I am putting together a set of patches currently. I'll post here
when they are ready. I don't have submit access to the CVS tree so I
won't be able to put them there. I would like some people to make sure
the patches don't break the Indy ;)
Also, what is a good way of getting the boot messages to print via the
prom commands? Currently I have a hacked up printk to do this, but would
like something cleaner. Would it be feasible to write a prom console? It
might make it easier to work on boxes without any sort of graphics support
