[rescue] Openboot Update needed for Netra X1

Hello all,

Well, I've gotten Solaris 10 1/13 installed: and now I've got a
strange issue - it seems the OS throws out these error messages:

     WARNING: ds1287_attach: Failed to add high interrupt.
     WARNING: ds1287_attach: Another instance is already attached.

It seems I need to update my OpenBoot PROM, this is what I currently
have (notice the lack of a version number after 4.0):

     Sun Netra X1 (UltraSPARC-IIe 400MHz), No Keyboard
     OpenBoot 4.0, 1024 MB memory installed, Serial #50717018.
     Ethernet address 0:3:ba:5:e1:5a, Host ID: 8305e15a.

Link to open issues, scroll down to platform specific, then the Netra X1 entry:


This is the patch I need (latest version available):


With Oracle having taken over Sun and re-arranging all their bits,
anyone know how I can get this patch to update my OpenBoot PROM? Is
this old enough to be available somewhere on the web?

My best information is that there is an -03 version of the patch
(111952-03) and it dates back to 2003ish...
