Just upgraded my Sun Blade 100 from OBP 4.0.45 to OBP 4.17.1.

The "MMU miss" error is still there and in addition 'stopping' the
openboot firmware while is checking the ram leave the system in an
unbootable state (boot command disabled), so no more 'Stop-A' and boot 

On the other end, Solaris loading is noticeable faster. :-(

Don't know if this is related, but rebooting 'sid' with my custom
2.6.11, now snd-ali5451 loads without errors, but the system stops
at /etc/init.d/alsa after 'Setting up ALSA...'. I did a dist-upgrade
just before rebooting, so this may be the latest alsa's fault.
