The problem here is that Compaq wants to show off their fast EV6 (21264)
alphas, and the other testdrive is the AlphaServer 1200.

OpenBSD doesn't support either of these platforms even in monoprocessor
mode, although platform support could be imported from NetBSD.  To do this,
however, someone probably need hands-on access to the hardware.
