Subject: Want to get rid of Alto emulator

Lisp Version: 

Description: '
Description': Almost all of the need for the Alto emulator in Interlisp-D on '
Dolphin and Dorado is gone. At least on the Dorado, it would free up '
substantial amounts of microcode space if we could get rid of the remaining '
needs. '
  we could either retain the current bootstrap/with/BCPL or convert over to a '
new boot regime (which would allow faster startup on Dorado, a real pain now to'
swap in your workingset. '
I think the main tasks are to move the thernet controller from BCPL into Lisp ('
which may solve some of the performance problems and also some bugs with the '
Dorado ethernet controller) and to move the disk controller into Lisp (maybe it'
is there already). Can you fill this AR out some more, Bill?'
