Yep. The only thing I found by searching the Debian list though was
Daniel Macedo Lorenzini's message. Even took a look through our ports
page and the FAQs linked from it and didn't find a thing. Then, after
some deep-nest searching I found a buried FAQ that mentioned my CPU's
specific mask revision.
So can one still badger a replacement CPU out of Motorola? With their
webserver down I can't check.
