I realize it's been a while since you wrote this, but I don't see anything
else in the mailing list archive about the Ultra133 card.

I just tried to replace the Sonnet Tempo (ACard-based) Ultra66 card in my
netbsd-macppc machine with a Maxtor-branded Promise Ultra133.  (Hey, it was
free with the hard drive.)  No joy:

pciide0 at pci0 dev 13 function 0: Promise Ultra133/ATA Bus Master IDE
Accelerator (rev. 0x02)
pciide0: bus-master DMA present
pciide0: primar channel configured to native-PCI mode
pciide0: using irq 23 for native-PCI interrupt
trap type 200 at 30b08c
Press a key to panic

Pressing a key drops into ddb, but 'trace' doesn't give any output at all.

This happens whether or not I have a drive connected to the card.  The
kernel is -current built from sources retrieved from CVS earlier today.

Where do I go from here?  Are there particular debug options I can enable in
the pciide driver that will output useful information?
