I have a question about the on-board memory of a NuBUS 'ae' device.
I recently installed a Macsense E430 LC PDS ethernet card in my Q630. NetBSD
1.5 detects the card as an 'ae' device and is able to use it with no
One minor issue, though, according to the Macsense website, this card has
64k of onboard memory. The ae probe, however, only sizes the card at 16k. In
looking at the memory sizing code, it appears that we do not even test for
cards having more than 32k of onboard memory. Is there a reason for this? Or
did the original author of the ae driver assume it could never happen?
Also, any ideas how I can get more of my card's memory detected?
