Your understanding was correct but I didn't think through how this is
implemented and gave incorrect instructions.  Since upset runs once for
each architecture, it deletes the !ready on the first architecture and
then never notices it for the second.

So, for the foreseeable future, you need two !ready files.

Sorry for the miscommunication.
