I don't think "quite identical" is correct. If it's PCI-X, I am pretty
sure it's not a Yukon (which we support) but a Yukon 2/Yukon XL, which we
don't. The differences between Yukon and Yukon 2 are sufficiently great
that I strongly suspect a completely new driver that shared some (but not
nearly all) datastructures with the existing 'sk' driver is the best way
to handle them.
