                      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.

                     48: 
                     49: * The PC keyboard controller on the P-4032. The interrupt handling code needs
                     50:   some work in order to support this. 
                     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. 
                     57: * The PC keyboard controller on the P-5064. The interrupt handling code needs
                     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. 
                     71: * Devices plugged into the PCMCIA slots on the P-5064. The interrupt handling
                     72:   code needs some work in order to support this. 
                     73: * Algorithmic P-4000i -- this is a very old machine, with considerably different
                     74:   hardware than the newer Algorithmics boards. It is unlikely that NetBSD/algor
                     75:   will ever support this machine. 
                     76: * Algorithmics P-6032 -- this is Algorithmics' latest board. Support for this
                     77:   model is in-progress.
