If you locate MK79..MK81, let me know.  I have not scoured for them,
but CMU doesn't have them anywhere obvious.  (I didn't find MK82 at CMU
either, but elsewhere.)

It currently looks like the Alpha port will be live before cthreads is
dead.  We can drop in the alpha asm code and I've already done
warning-fixes for 64 bit nits.  But I would be happier doing a true merge
with the exact CMU codebase that actually ran on Alpha.
