The only simple rules are that OSS only exists on one model, the Mac IIfx,
the PSC only exists on two (three, sort of) models: the Quadra 660AV
(which is also the Centris 660AV) and the Quadra 840AV, and the Baboon
only exists on one m68k model, the Powerbook 190 (it also exists on the
PowerBook 5300, but that is ppc).
What's messy is VIA2/RBV, which gets very complicated. The only simple
thing there is that the Mac IIfx doesn't have any of that because it
has OSS instead.

Not strictly true, but it's mapped onto IRQ_VIA2_0 in the other case.

More help is always good. Hope I've been helpful as well.
