Recently, I asked:

I was able to get the solution by calling the Sun 800 number.

According to the person that I talked to, the problems with large SCSI disk
drives only happen with the Sun4c kernel. The problems do not exist in the
Sun4 kernel.

That explains why patch 100343-02 only as a Sun4c patch.
