As much testing as possible :-)

I think most platforms have some way to generate an INIT (either
a front panel button like on Tiger, or by asking the maintenance
processor to generate one).  So it would be good to hear an Ack
from as many different platforms as possible.

MCA testing is somewhat harder as it requires specialized h/w
and/or s/w to inject the error.  But I know that some of you can
do this ... so I'd like to hear what happens.

The more eyes the better.  Even better than coaxing someone to
look at this would be coaxing them to explain it to you (they'll
have to look harder, and you'll learn more about this code).
