The da30 port that was added to the tree recently also has a zs driver
(not related to the sparc port's, as far as I can tell) that deserves
some further investigation.  It may have some advantages over the sparc
driver, though it also has a few oddities (eg control lines on one port
are used to control the da30's SCSI chip; also no mnemonic names are
used for the registers, just their offsets).
