NAME
     z3rambd -- Zorro III RAM block device driver

SYNOPSIS
     z3rambd* at zbus0

     devices (e.g. for swap).

HARDWARE
     The z3rambd driver supports the following hardware:

           AmigaKit ZorRAM

           DKB 3128

           FastLane Z3

           Individual Computers BigRamPlus

SEE ALSO
     altmem(4), boot(8)

HISTORY
     The z3rambd device first appeared in NetBSD 7.0.

AUTHORS
     The z3rambd driver was written by Radoslaw Kujawa
     <radoslaw.kujawa@gmail.com>.

CAVEATS
     Currently it is up to the user to ensure that given memory board is not
     used by the kernel as normal RAM.  It is usually safe to pass the -n0 and
     -p parameters to boot loader.

     If the kernel is compiled without the z3rambd driver, it is possible to
     use Zorro III memory boards as normal RAM in some configurations.  How-
     ever, this might have severe performance consequences.  It is advised to
     use Zorro III memory boards as swap where possible.
