I think so, too.

While this is true in FreeBSD's driver and Pete's new driver, but
NetBSD-current's aic7xxx is very old (based on 1995 May version of
FreeBSD driver), and there is no significant difference between
aic7770 (ahe) probe/attach code and aic7870 (ahc) probe/attach code.
So that I think it can do. Not ? (I could be wrong, though)
