It's merged now and roms are on messftp. No docs (yet -- they exist, just have to be scanned, I am waiting for that), but I suspect that code tests if IRQ is triggered after it's unmasked.

Ok I got it up and running now and I got the self test to hang obviously since the emulation is not complete but is there an actual problem apart from that?

Selftests does torture the emulation and as it is optional you can just ignore it for now I think as interrupts seems to work just fine from what I can see when the firmware is communicating with the terminal.

Well, passing self test gives some confidence that emulation is done correctly smile Interrupt line is not hooked up, so firmware must be doing polled i/o.

Let's wait until the docs are scanned, anyway

Sure, do you have a picture of the board already were we might see if there is a VME controller ASIC and a BIM or some other IRQ controller suspects?
