I checked out oskit-mach from CVS and linked it with oskit-0.97.20010214
that I got from the debian archive. It boots and seems to work. It
recoginses everything and even gets to starting up the system servers.
However it panics somewhere inside the Linux tulip-driver.

I've always supposed that Roland didn't include the DC_NO_ONLCR flag on
purpose, if not I hope he accepts your patch.
