The *ability* to accept the FPP (and/or cache -- M8268 I think?) is what
makes it an -A. And you need the right over-the-top connector (hazy memory
says H882 or H8822 for either or both option but I may have made those up).
Better to reduce the variables and leave the FPP off for now.
The fact that you can get so far with such a fundamental bug seems insane.
I'd almost start wondering about your terminal (it's insane, but less
insane), if you weren't copying/pasting all those all-zeros numbers. XXDP
stuff would never depend on DIV or ASH unless that's what it's testing --
its whole purpose is to limp along on partially broken hardware. Insanity!
