OK, I am a little clueless at this hour.  As it appears you are
making fun of the way I wrote that code, perhaps you should
provide a suggestion.  I have more, the 82xx looks just like
that :-)......I am off to look at the m68k tree......

Yes, I am.  Although it is not really 82xx.  The 8240 is a 603
with a diluted MPC106 without OF.  When attached to the Sandpoint,
it looks somewhat like the Gemini port.  The 8260 is a 603 with
a hot rod CPM, so it looks more like the current 8xx port.
Both of these use the "board information" structure in place of
the OF residual like I did on the 8xx.
