For the port-specific things, would it be feasible to just copy the 3.1
file back on top of the mainline files as a starting point?  I've never
worked hard on a port, so it's quite possible I'm talking out of my ass
here, but it seems like the 3.1 sparc code is now in much better shape
than what's on the mainline.
