Yes, it seems to work here, I just booted a SX nfs-rooted, I can't
believe it, but it seems to work w/o problems.

Thanks for the patch. The PYXIS machine check problem is not very
important for me (or am I wrong ? rth says that graceful SRM reboot
should work, but with the 4-port card I get a machine check on reboot...).
This is no real problem at moment here, but if you need exact reports
contact me... I have not tried 2.1.122-rth18 without a 4-port card because
I'm a bit stressed; maybe it's an independent problem.
