  One reason is that some CPU names are preceded by periods and some
  aren't. Another is that the Indigo R4000 and later CPUs use the
  suffix 'ARCS', not 'IP20' or whatever as one might expect from
  'hinv'. For example, the correct command to boot fx directly from the
  PROM monitor on an Indigo R4000 is 'boot -f dksc(ctlr,unit,8)sashARCS
  dksc(ctlr,unit,7)stand/fx.ARCS'. Note the use of 'ARCS' instead of
  'IP20' and the missing period in 'sashARCS'.
