it looks like I miss the v1.  Anyway, some random comments:

* thank you for working on that!

* sx164 is ev56 based, isn't it ?  It would be nice if cpu version specific 
code is clearly marked.
  In particular (and IIRC), pal mode for ev6 is much closer to ev4 than to ev5. 
 Don't know about ev7.
  It would be nice if we could easily support both ev5 and ev6.

* Yes, executive and supervisor are used only by VMS (well AFAIK).  I'd like to 
support it.
  Did you try to also support the windows mmu mode ?

* Again, thank you for working on that.
