Could happen -- in which case the SEEPROM would be ignored and the card would
be set up to use whatever the driver decides that it's capable of, I think.
Specific to the sgimips port, the odds of someone dropping another ahc into
the sole PCI slot are IMHO pretty low.
That having been said, how about doing something like this in the config:
ahc0 at pci0 dev 1 function ? driveropts 0x80000004
... which would entail changes to the MI pci autoconfig code, but would
permit hardwiring specific controllers without affecting usual cases.
Would that be acceptable?
