Actually, my idea won't work if the card is used in a non-Sparc
This should be detected at runtime, and that is easily done.OK, i'll look at it... Thanks for the hint!
You can use the PCI device to get at the firmware device
node, and use that to look for a firmware device node property
that identifies it as a card from Sun.
Usually the "name" property has some identifying string in it.
Sometimes there is a property with the string "fcode" in it and you
could look for that as well.
system. Do these cards have PCI subsystem vendor or device ID's that
identify it as a Sun card?
Here's the output of lspci:

Expansion ROM at 0000000080000000 [disabled] [size=32K]
As it looks it's equal to the "Intel" based cards...
Don't think it will work then, right?
