I think there are 2 discussions intermixing:

  1- Is the FreeBSD CAM implementation technically sound and would it
     enhance our kernel. Is this the way to go...
  2- Is it feasible to do the implementation and to implement the missing
     bits like:
        - ATAPI support
        - HBA support
        - Target drivers

First we have to decide on 1, this is the most important one. If I read the
thread until now correctly, there are people willing to do some work on 2.
And I realize that the atari port is touched by this. It uses both the
ncr5380 and ATAPI... Ah well, it might be a good point to step over to the
MI 5380 driver ;-)
