Hi Helmer,

First of all, let me clarify current status of m68k/netbsd. My previous
mail looks very unclear, sorry for my bad English.

Status: It works for all three engines with roughly 20 errors.
# except for configure problem for link.

OK, go into the detail...

Yes, this is the behavior I found. I wrote similar picture to verify
my findings. And that's why I reverted Tony's patch.

Well... No, not at all...
My lazy brain said, 'if it works right now, don't spend long time
for Archaeological study' :-) It's very interesting why once Tony
found this added portion made the behavior much better than
without that.

Anyway, that's good time to go back to SH3/jit for me.
