Sparc64 - console too slow and freezes everything



Hi,

I have installed 3.2 on an UltraSparc 5. Everything is fine
but the console performance.
The scrolling is too slow and the interesting side is it freezes
every running process while it scrolls up. This makes remote ssh
connections a nightmare when someone is working on the console.

Another problem is with the SCSI controller which gets controlled
by siop driver. Continuously dumps the messages below.

   siop1: scsi bus reset
   siop1: target 0 now using 8 bit async xfers
   siop1: target 1 now using 8 bit async xfers
...[ cut: similar lines with targes 2-9 ]...
   siop1: target 10 now using 8 bit async xfers
   probe(siop1:11:0): command with tag id 0 reset
   siop1: target 11 now using 8 bit async xfers
   probe(siop1:11:0): timeout on SCSI command 0x12

The machine has no SCSI drives so I disabled the siop to stop seeing
these errors.

Regards,
-bdd

Here is the dmesg
