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

                     49: 
                     50: * The PC keyboard controller on the P-4032. The interrupt handling code needs
                     51:   some work in order to support this. 
                     52: * The Centronics port on the P-4032. This may, in fact, work, but the logic is
                     53:   apparently buggy, and the interrupts are wired up in a strange way. The device
                     54:   is completely untested. 
                     55: * The floppy controller on the P-4032. The P-4032 floppy controller uses
                     56:   pseudo-DMA via a "DMA request" interrupt. Support for this function has not
                     57:   yet been implemented. 
                     58: * The PC keyboard controller on the P-5064. The interrupt handling code needs
                     59:   some work in order to support this.

                     62:   is completely untested. 
                     63: * The on-board PCI IDE (part of the PIIX3 southbridge) on the P-5064. The PMON
                     64:   firmware does not configure the IDE controller, so NetBSD sees it as
                     65:   "disabled". Some code will have to be added to initialize the PCI IDE
                     66:   controller before it can be used. 
                     67: * On-board USB on the PCI bus (part of the PIIX3 southbridge) on the P-5064.
                     68:   The uhci driver causes a bus error when it attempts to perform DMA, and the
                     69:   system hangs. A bug report has been filed so that the issue can be tracked. 
                     70: * Devices plugged into the ISA slot on the P-5064. The interrupt handling code
                     71:   needs some work in order to support this. 
                     72: * Devices plugged into the PCMCIA slots on the P-5064. The interrupt handling
                     73:   code needs some work in order to support this. 
                     74: * Algorithmic P-4000i -- this is a very old machine, with considerably different
                     75:   hardware than the newer Algorithmics boards. It is unlikely that NetBSD/algor
                     76:   will ever support this machine. 
                     77: * Algorithmics P-6032 -- this is Algorithmics' latest board. Support for this
                     78:   model is in-progress.
