Subject: EPICS on cPCI/PPC

After an unreasonable amount of thrashing, most of which was due to
dumb mistakes on my part, I've got EPICS (sort of) running on a
Motorola mcp750 cpu in a PCI bin.  At this point it's just a few
soft records, but at least there aren't any dead tasks.  I gotta do
a bunch of testing, obviously, but since The Boss is off sick I'm
gonna declare "A Great Leap Forward."

A couple of symbols get noted as "undefined" at load time;
sysIntEnable() and sysIntDisable().  I kind of thought that stuff
in sysLib was supposed to at least have entry points, even if they
don't do anything.  This did not keep iocInit from completing,
however.

Also, there's a bunch of symbols (entry points) that the BSP
documentation claims should exist but don't seem to be there.
At this point I don't know if any of them are really going to be
a problem.  Some of them do sound interesting, however.

I'd appreciate any tips and/or hints from people who have done ports
to strange platforms.  Oh yeah - vxWorks 5.3, system 5.2-mode,
epics R#.13.0b12.
