Regardless, looking at /boot/silo.conf in the netinst I don't see any
support for sun4v platforms and so this may be just a waste of effort.

Umm, what?

root@osaka:~# uname -a
Linux osaka 4.17.0-1-sparc64-smp #1 SMP Debian 4.17.8-1 (2018-07-20) sparc64 
root@osaka:~# cat /proc/cpuinfo |grep sun
type            : sun4v
MMU Type        : Hypervisor (sun4v)

What makes you think Debian doesn't run on a T4 when we've been running
it on a T5 in the past and folk at Oracle even running on an M8?!?!

maybe the logic that T4 compares as "less" to both T5 and M8.

But psst, don't tell him it also works on T1 and T2. ;-)

pssst ... there is nothing in the silo.conf of netinst.iso for sun4v and that had me wondering.

regardless .. how the heck to netboot this thing ?
