VScom PCI-400 on Alpha
A couple of hints regarding the VScom PCI-400 on alpha boxen, getting it to work with FreeBSD and Linux.
Linux
VScom provides a patch for Linux, but it's Intel only, but the code isn't really all that Intel specific. I modified it to work on alpha. Some of the german boot messages were also modified. This patch works for me, but no guarantees or warranty implied.
FreeBSD
FreeBSD borrowed the puc driver from NetBSD which enables full use of VScom cards on FreeBSD. The issue is however that the puc driver is only enabled for i386, I fiddled with the source a bit and came up this patch, which works for me, but no guarantees or warranty implied. There is a pointer size error somewhere which means that some cleaning up is probably needed before puc can really be enabled for non-Intel architectures.
So Long and thanks for all the Fish
