IPS (~= RPS) was running on shared FSB HP9000's.  Now, that was also a BSD 
networking stack with netisrq's and the like.  TOPS (~= RFS) was also run on 
shared FSB HP9000s, as well as CC-NUMA HP9000s and Integrity systems.  TOPS was 
implemented in a Streams-based stack tracing its history to a common ancestor 
with Solaris (Mentat).
