Impressive.  Thanks for your work!

In March we had a little discussion here in port-sparc, and the result
was that someone went to the Sun web page and requested that they
release the documentation to the public.  In August, the status on the
web page was changed to "Unable to locate". For details, see:

I guess this means that Sun is unable to release any docs since they
do not have them any more.  So it seems that the only way left to get
at the SX doc is for one person to actually look at the Solaris source
code for the driver, write a spec, and for some other person to
implement the spec.
