We're building a high-speed network interface for
a 486 with VL-bus and I'm having trouble figuring out
how to create a virtual address for the board.

No I/O ports/commands will be recognized by the board. It
will simply look and act like memory. 

In the probe routine, I'd like to create an address for the
base of the board. Since id_maddr is really for memory
near 0xa0000, it's useless. 

Any pointers on handling this?
