2.11BSD, non-split i/d issues

As already mentioned in previous messages, I'm working on getting
2.9BSD onto a Pro 350. I'm using 2.9BSD as a starting point because
it claims to support machines without split i/d. The 350 uses the
F-11 chipset, which I have read does not support split i/d.
I would prefer to use 2.11BSD because I understand it's still actively
used, and not as buggy as 2.9. But everything I've read about 2.11BSD
says that it needs split i/d to run. Can anyone give me more detail
about this? Was support for machines without split i/d removed from
the kernel, or is it just that some of the programs are too big to fit
in a single 64k segment?
