Debian install disk boots until VFS eject prompt, then
the ramdisk is read and then the disk keeps on ejecting
(I don't think any of the ramdisk is read it hasn't got
the time to).

    SWIM driver is not completely finish.
    It works only on fast macintosh.
    I need to rewrite some parts in m68k assembler to fix this
    problem.

    It appears to be a bug clearing the eject interupt. The
    rescue disk works.

    It seems it's not a CPU speed problem.
    Driver works fine on my Quadra 610 (68040/20), and Q605 is
    faster (68LC040/25).

    Ok, found out that my 605 is one of the faulty floating
    point CPU's. This bug is probably when a floating point
    check/save occurs.
