[20071211] Rebirth of NetBSD's ofppc port
Tim Rightnour has worked a lot on NetBSD's PowerPC ports recently, providing infrastructure works for common pieces of hardware found on several platforms. While there, the NetBSD port to machines with an OpenFirmware interface to the hardware was revived, to allow running NetBSD on machines like the Genesi Pegasos II.

See Tim's posting for some more details and a dmesg output of his machine. NetBSD's new PowerPC-developer Frank Wille also has the port running, and he reports that he has the Pegasos system running in multiuser mode with no stability problems.
