NetBSD  1.5V NetBSD 1.5V (GENERIC) #49: Sun May 27 00:08:04 PDT 2001     root2@c610:/usr/cvs/src/sys/arch/mac68k/compile/GENERIC mac68k

>Description:
If the "serial boot echo" option is enabled in the MacOS booter *without* enabling a serial console (e.g., using the built-in screen and keyboard), the kernel drops into the debugger at the following point in the boot sequence:

  nubus0 at mainbus0
  fpu0 at mainbus0 (emulator)
  Stopped in pid 0 (swapper) at _cpu_Debugger+0x6 unlk a6
  db>

At this point, keyboard input is inoperative so the only alternative is to power down the system.

On a successful boot, the next step (after detecting the (lack of) fpu) is detecting the ADB subsystem.

With "serial boot echo" disabled, everything works fine.
