Jake's p4 branch had working code (I've been using my u30 as my main
desktop for about 6 months now, until the monitor went on the fritz
yesterday), except the latest p4 code causes XFree86 to reset my
machine at startup.  I believe there are some integration issues in
getting this merged into the CVS tree.

Be aware that 4.x's NFS code doesn't like talking to sparc64 clients -
it causes the i386 server to double fault.  5.x as a server is
perfectly happy though.
