I thought it was a variant of JTAG to the CS6400. Google pulls up links
to SunHelp, Wikipedia, and other places that support that.
I have no clue what a CM5 used, but I doubt it was HIPPI.
I also don't know what a J90 used, but since HIPPI was supposed to be an
option, I don't think it was HIPPI. The J90 boots from an IOS (a VME
SS5 BTW), and I suspect that the IOS netboots from the SS5.
