SubjectRE: Intel I860
Date
From
Different i860. I think he may be referring to one of these, eg.,
http://www.tyan.com/products/html/thunderi860.html.

I've booted a recent Linux kernel on this board and, aside from the
unbalanced interrupts previously mentioned, it seemed ok. Then again, I
didn't do any load stressing that might reveal potential failures.
