From my current testing it looks like "UltraSPARC IIIi"s are also
affected by this problem with UltraSPARC T1s in some way:

With the latest Linux 5.10.x (from Debian) the root FS can't be
successfully mounted, with the latest Linux 5.9.x (also from Debian) it
just works fine. Unfortunately the V245 doesn't fail/work for the exact
same kernels that I tested during the bisecting for the T1000, e.g. the
first bad commit version that didn't work on the T1000 seems to work on
the V245 but some good versions don't with:

Begin: Retrying nfs mount ... [   41.753937] NFS: mount program didn't
pass remote address
mount: Invalid argument

I'm unsure what could go wrong here, as I always pass the remote address
via the kernel commandline:

[    2.928512] Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=(tftp)/AC10027A.vmlinux
nfsroot= nfsrootdebug rw

Maybe there is some breakage in the klibc based programs in the
initramfs, but why they don't affect both UltraSPARC IIIi and T1 in the
same way is somewhat strange.
