Default Another one bites the dust: sgi support dropped post 6.5

Module name: www
Changes by: 2019/09/25 05:28:00

Modified files:
. : plat.html

Log message:
discontinue sgi.

(On the o350 (where builds happened for years) there is a dma / disk
controller bug which was never fully diagnosed and fixed in the driver.
it locks up the vfs layer after a while, and sometimes causes quite
catastrophic filesystem layout. I have tired of repairing these situation.
The octeon platform is becoming more viable as a mips64 canarie, so we'll
carry on using it)

Say what you will about sgi, but their computers rarely looked boring. My favourite is probably the blue indy pizzabox.
