As I've said, I wouldn't call 0.007 rock-solid, but, hey, we're hacking

Sorry, forgot to mention, you have to change /dev/console and /dev/tty
according to linux/Documentation/serial-console.txt.

Florian, declance.c doesn't work on my '260, so I'd like to ask you a few
R4000 related questions:
o How long does it take for init to start? It takes several _minutes_ on
my '133 and tcpdump doesn't show any activity on the wire.
o Can you switch the runlevel? Doesn't work on my '133, machine hangs
o Does mount work with a vanilla /bin/mount? It didn't on my '133. This is
no big deal. Replacing /bin/mount with an rpm from ftp.cobaltmicro.com
