Sounds like heavy rumor. The Fast MMU Access occurs well before init is
executed, if I recall correctly (by the time init is called, traps are in
place that would trigger kernel code in the case of this hw error).
Most of what I have heard is in relation to first-cd.b bootloader and
Ultra III's. Since I don't have an Ultra III, I can't do any testing.
