Hi Cort,

I have it running.  I had some troubles with 2.2.2.  The SCSI system tended
to lock up after awhile but this seems to be gone on 2.2.3.  The only thing
I have so far noticed is that when compiled with SMP enabled, the 2.2.2
release hung during semaphore handling in the SCSI driver and in 2.2.3 it
panics at the same place.  I traced it down that far but have not had the time
go further.

I was glad to see that you have merged in the open firmware changes from
Gary Thomas.  I am finally preparing a patch of all the stuff I have been
and will get that to you today.
