    sys/sparc64/conf     GENERIC 
  Turn on atkbdc(4), atkbd(4), creator(4), machfb(4), syscons(4), ohci(4),
  psm(4), ukbd(4), ums(4) and usb(4) on by default. Modulo some nits with
  the most annoying one probably being USB keyboards no longer working at
  the OFW boot prompt after halting FreeBSD these drivers work fine on
  sparc64 including X and there's nothing left that I'd consider a show-
  stopper. I.e. graphical consoles on sun4u machines should either work
  out of the box or by plugging in a card that is supported by either
  creator(4) or machfb(4). The exception obviously are SBus-only machines
  without UPA slots like some Ultra 1 (but which also still lack support
  in other areas) and certain Exx0 (but which probably are mainly used
  with serial consoles anyway). I'll try to add a cgsix(4) for these later
  as Sun CG6 cards are probably the most common SBus framebuffer cards in
  sun4u machines. I however don't see much sense in adding drivers for the
  dozen of SBus framebuffers that were destined for sparc v8 machines.
  The rest of the USB drivers aren't enabled as I'm only aware of ukbd(4)
  and ums(4) as well as ohci(4) working with the on-board ALI M5237 and
  Sun PCIO-2 controllers. Aue(4) definitely doesn't work on sparc64, yet.
  Thanks to:
  - Jake for the initial work on syscons(4) on sparc64 and creator(4).
  - Marcel for uart(4) and especially for its support for the SCCs which
    are only used on sparc64 so far. In various regards it wouldn't have
    been possible to enable syscons(4) by default on sparc64, yet, without
  - All that tested patches.
