I googled around, and the problem is not Sparc specific.  Lot of pointers to
PPC, and some articles on Debian and Aurora mailing lists for Sparc (mostly
small boxes such as Netra X1 and SunFire v100).  Not common on i386, but I
found couple of folks having same problems there (usually BIOS update resolved
problem on i386).  Some articles go back couple of years to kernel 2.4.  So it
is old thing.  Seems that thing either doesn't affect the system, or it makes
it unbootable.  Depending how lucky you are.  Guess we were lucky ;-)

One thing I noticed is that the region it complains about is not reported in
"cat /proc/iomem".  The "LED on unused ehternet port flashes like crazy" thing
could also be related to this.
