Are docs for that card available? We have a machine with it at work, so I
could create and test the necessary glue, if someone points me to hardware

Supposedly there is

 (a) either a BAR in the card that behaves like the "standard PCI" (i.e.
     legacy ISA) joystick or

 (b) there is a special interface defined

In case of (a) a simple hack to the eap driver will do it, in case (b) a
new driver will have to be done. But if you look at the length of all joystick
code in ther kernel, this will not be long ;-)

I would expect (a).
