It's always great to see support for more hardware! I know there are plenty of people wishing they could load OpenBSD on V215/V245 and their ilk, and here it is! Also, anyone with Sun Fire V445 or Ultra 25 / Ultra 45 please give it a shot and send a dmesg.
Read on for Mark's message and more details...
In a recent message to sparc@ and misc@, Mark Kettenis writes:
I just committed the final bits that make the Sun Fire V215 and V245 fully supported in 4.1-current. These machines have a PCIe host bridge, supported by the new pyro(4) driver. Writing this driver was the biggest challange, since Sun doesn't provide any documentation for it. So it took some extensive digging through the OpenSolaris code to figure out how the hardware was supposed to work. OpenBSD seems to be the first OS besides Solaris to support these machines (at least I could not find any evidence in the Linux source code that they do support the PCIe host bridge), and the first complete open source OS that runs on them (OpenSolaris still requires some closed source drivers to run). It is very likely that Sun Fire V445 server and Ultra 25 and Ultra 45 workstations also work now. So if you have access to one of those machines, please give the latest snapshots a go and send a dmesg to dmesg@. Mark
