        !             9: NetBSD/algor is the port of NetBSD to the Algorithmics, Ltd. MIPS evaluations
        !            10: boards. Algorithmics is a long-time supplier of MIPS evaluation/prototyping
        !            11: products and expertise.
        !            12: 
        !            13: Algorithmics boards include PCI and PC-like on-board peripherals, and have a CPU
        !            14: daughtercard, allowing the user to evaluate a variety of MIPS CPUs.
        !            15: 
        !            16: Algorithmics boards include the PMON boot monitor/debugger. PMON is able to load
        !            17: the NetBSD kernel over the Centronics port (in S-record format) or over the
        !            18: network (in ELF format) using BOOTP/TFTP.
        !            19: 
        !            20: Algorithmics boards can generally be run in big- or little-endian mode, although
        !            21: NetBSD/algor currently only supports little-endian.

        !            51: * The Centronics port on the P-4032. This may, in fact, work, but the logic is
        !            52:   apparently buggy, and the interrupts are wired up in a strange way. The device
        !            53:   is completely untested. 
        !            54: * The floppy controller on the P-4032. The P-4032 floppy controller uses
        !            55:   pseudo-DMA via a "DMA request" interrupt. Support for this function has not
        !            56:   yet been implemented.

        !            58:   some work in order to support this.

        !            61:   is completely untested. 
        !            62: * The on-board PCI IDE (part of the PIIX3 southbridge) on the P-5064. The PMON
        !            63:   firmware does not configure the IDE controller, so NetBSD sees it as
        !            64:   "disabled". Some code will have to be added to initialize the PCI IDE
        !            65:   controller before it can be used. 
        !            66: * On-board USB on the PCI bus (part of the PIIX3 southbridge) on the P-5064.
        !            67:   The uhci driver causes a bus error when it attempts to perform DMA, and the
        !            68:   system hangs. A bug report has been filed so that the issue can be tracked. 
        !            69: * Devices plugged into the ISA slot on the P-5064. The interrupt handling code
        !            70:   needs some work in order to support this.

        !            72:   code needs some work in order to support this.

        !            74:   hardware than the newer Algorithmics boards. It is unlikely that NetBSD/algor
        !            75:   will ever support this machine.
