OpenBSD now supports the UltraSPARC T1

OpenBSD now supports the UltraSPARC T1 processor according to this post by Mark Kettenis on the openbsd-announce mailing list:

Yesterday I committed the last bit of code to support machines with
Sun’s UltraSPARC T1 CPUs. Below is a dmesg for the SPARC Enterprise
T1000, and although other machines have not been tested yet, machines
like the SPARC Enterprise T2000 and Sun Blade T6300 are expected to
work too. As you can see, we support SMP right from the start.

All this is included in a standard OpenBSD/sparc64 kernel. Snapshots
with UltraSPARC T1 support are now available at and
its mirrors. It would be great if people could try these snapshots on
a few more UltraSPARC T1 machines.

LDOM support is not yet complete; I’m still working on drivers for
virtual network interfaces and virtual disks. But domains with access
to real hardware should work fine.

UltraSPARC T2 machines are not yet supported, but hopefully that’ll
change soon.
