Time's up, folks; if no fix has been found yet for these bootloader bugs,
they'll have to remain hardware-specific errata for sarge.  They will no
longer be allowed to block the release, since silo still works on the
majority of sparc hardware.

Someone should, however, document these problems for the install manual
and/or d-i errata.

If someone can determine one way or another whether the gcc-2.95 rebuild
actually fixes the problem on Ultra5 for someone other than Geert, that
would help me in deciding whether an NMU is warranted.
