The current code deals with hardware errors inside the processor by
killing the user mode thread which was unlucky enough to be running at
the time. So as well as adding decodes in traps.c, you may also want to
ensure that internal error checking is enabled on 7400/10/50, and that
the machine is halted once an error is detected. I do have a patch for
this, but there wasn't a great deal of interest last time I posted it.

The 2_4_devel tree already supports the mpc107. What did you have in mind?
