I am planning to do a motherboard upgrade and was wondering
about hardware limitations in the upcoming 1.1 release.  Will the 
AIC7XXX driver support the Adaptec AHA-2842 VL-Bus SCSI card?
Are mice attached to the aux. PS/2 port PROPERLY supported as I noticed 
some caution statements in the pmc.c file.  If I have a machine with
64MB RAM will I encounter the ISA/DMA bounce buffer problem?  Will the
problem affect PCI DMA Bus Mastering products?  What about VL-Bus?
Probably will affect all ISA Bus mastering products, right?

It seems absolutely TERRIBLE that bounce buffer support
won't make it into 1.1.  It really needs to be there.
