As I read the relevant portions of the FreeBSD device driver -- I am guessing
the "type B" adapter is the 16xx, and the "type D" adapter I see in some
later revisions of the driver may be the 188x version 2 or version 3, which
add PCI-E v3 supoort -- I am struck by the fact that they have inserted so
many switch statements so many places that they should really have just
produced 3 device drivers sharing some common code in another source file.

I don't have the time to do that right now...
