The RUDAK A and B processors are more or less identical, and can be operated
relatively independently.  They are in the same box, however, and the IHU only
has one power control for the box.

If everything works (and we're still way too early in the turn-on process to
know that yet), it's entirely possible for both RUDAK CPU's to be up and
running and doing entirely different things.
