Unfortunately, some MI drivers are not tested or would not work
on big endian machines, including macppc.

This may be supported by tlp driver in -current.
I'm using Macronix MX98715A with tlp driver on macppc.
(Sometimes it gets many errors, though)

This card is supported by rl driver (appeared 1.4.2, and
renamed to rtk in -current) but does not seem to work on macppc.

This is supported by ex driver and I used on macppc for a while,
but does not tested on heavy load.
I guess the GENERIC kernel contains only tested/confirmed devices...
