The qfe/hme card has been somewhat of a conundrum for me as well. i =
have many 200MHz ultra1s and a few ultra5s, some with the qfe cards. =
when installing the -current kernel (which is all the U1/200 will run), =
it hangs after correctly identifying qfe0..3. i'd probably rather have =
the sbus (u1) one work moreso than the pci (u5) version work, but either =
one would really help me. some of this hardware is my own; would a =
shell on something connected to the console be of any value to you? =
i've been failing to make the qfe's work for about a year now, so i'm =
ready to let smarter heads beat on them for a while.

It's not a 1E.

Can you live with just 3 out of the 4?
The first thing we need to do to get this fixed is figure out
exactly where the hang occurs, which means either adding a
bunch of printf() to the driver, or opening up the case and
hitting the XIR pin (which is inconveniently located under
the cgsix) once the machine hangs.
If you want to file a PR, go ahead. But it's unlikely to
be fixed without access to the proper hardware.
