   Please don't say "unnecessary" ... my home machine (a clone
   SS-1/IPC hybrid) has an Intel 82077-based floppy ... (it works with
   the patched fd.o that comes in the patches area on the SunOS 4.1.3

My impression was that the 82072 and 82077 are basically the same,
except that the 82077 does perpendicular recording, and requires more
anality in initializing it.

It should be easy to make a driver work with both.
