I believe that this has been tested on big-endian PowerPC and Sparc
as well as little-endian ARM/XScale and x86.  The NetBSD bus_space(9)
and bus_dma(9) APIs are used in this driver and should allow it to
operate in all NetBSD systems with PCI support.  Do you have any
specific issues with it?


                  Use NetBSD!
