    8: about="""
    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.

   29: ###Supported Peripherals
   30: 
   31: * Algorithmics P-4032
   32:     * On-board NCR53c810 SCSI on the PCI bus (siop)

   47: ###Not Yet Supported
   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. 
   59: * The Centronics port on the P-5064. This may, in fact, work, but the logic is
   60:   apparently buggy, and the interrupts are wired up in a strange way. The device
   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.
