Dunno what that is. If you're really curious you can use the PROM to
traverse the device tree and dump properties until you find it.

Neither of these should be required. They both are useful only for
managing low-level power and timing aspects of the machine that the PROM
can handle perfectly well.

This is the siemens serial controller chip. The driver for that is

These two are NS16550 derivatives that run the keyboard and
mouse. Drivers for these will be enabled once I get the sunkbd/sunms line

This would be the floppy disk drive controller. What use is a floppy disk

This is only useful if you want to upgrade your PROM. Since that could
easily toast your machine and requires special applications from Sun I
don't think we'll implement this soon.

This is the sound chip. We may need an ebus front end for this.

What can I say? VGA display. Needs working sunkbd/sunms line disciplines
to be at all useful, and then there's the issue of getting XFree86 to
