We need to add it to the manual. Stuff is complicated by the fact that there
are various different subarches which do it differently :

   newworld pmacs

   oldworld pmacs (maybe, not sure, maybe same as newworld ones).

   IBM rs6k chrp boxes

   prep boxes

   pegasos machines

I can provide the pegasos stuff, and now that i have a prep box, maybe also
the prep stuff, which may be in some way similar to the IBM rs6k stuff. Colin
can (or did) provide the newworld stuff.
