System: NetBSD/zaurus 5.99.47 on SL-C1000,
but 5.1 also affected
Architecture: arm
Machine: zaurus
NetBSD's zbsdmod.o lkm driver on Zaurus Linux can't load GENERIC kernel.


Bootstrap on Zaurus Linux:

$ su
# insmod zbsdmod.o
# exit
$ cp netbsd /proc/zboot

 [hang with corrupt screen]

As OpenBSD's zbsdmod, shrinking memory size to 5MB works around,
though we can't load larger INSTALL kernel in that case.;r2=1.6

OpenBSD's zbsdmod.o can also load NetBSD/zaurus GENERIC.

We also need actual install document...

Does it work now?

Installation on SL-C1000 with 8GB SDHC works fine.
(though we still need install notes)
