The PDP11 architecture handbook says CIS was an option on the
Micro/PDP-11, the 11/23-plus, the 11/24, and the 11/44. (Hm, I had
forgotten about the 11/44...) Micro/PDP-11 seems like another name
for 11/23. But elsewhere (in the intro) it also shows the LSI11/2 as
a machine with CIS option. That's the 11/03, I believe.
