I can't provide diffs, but I thinks this is a bit thin:
. It Pa netbsd-MILAN-ISAIDE.gz
A kernel specifically tuned for the MILAN using IDE in ISA mode.
. It Pa netbsd-MILAN-PCIIDE.gz
A kernel specifically tuned for the MILAN using IDE in PCI mode.
I would propose this (without formatting) - English is not my native language
either, but I think this should be OK:
A kernel specifically tuned for the MILAN, using the onboard IDE ports in ISA
This mode supports byte-swapped disk drives (like on the Falcon030).
A kernel specifically tuned for the MILAN, using the onboard IDE ports in PCI
This mode only works with IDE disks whose data is non-byteswapped (new Milan
disk layout, like on PCs).
Furthermore, PCI IDE cards are supported.
Note that mixing byteswapped and non-byteswapped disks is not supported.
For details on byteswapping on IDE drives, see MILAN.in at <location>
