i can confirm, that this seems to be true.

so here i go:
on two serial-console only ultra 1 clones (no keyboard, no graphic
card, no internal scsi-devices) booting older tftpboot images only
lead to the missing console after mounting the ramdisk and therefore
no further success.
with the new tftpboot image i were able to go through the first steps
of the setup-dialog, but sooner or later a

using the tftpboot-2.2.1.img.2.1.8-sparc image on a

(both ultra sparc clones). i tried both with the same external disk.
while initializing a swap partition (with scanning about bad-blocks) i

next try checked and mounted the swap, but stuck creating the filesystem:

i got both errors repeated on both ultra's while creating/mounting the
swap partition or creating the filesystem. (and got the same error
without checking about bad blocks too...)
sorry, i cannot support additional test-platform output (especially
with another disk), but the same hardware configuration installs and
runs sol26 fine (well, the installation was fine, not the solaris ;-)
maybe someone else of you out there got this ``Kernel does fpu/atomic
unaligned load/store'' error too ?
but anyway, thank you very much for working on the ultra-penguin
