Currently it doesn't support uVAX, but it shouldn't be too hard to fix.
RQDX3 is an MSCP controller just like UDA50, so it should work without
too much problem. I don't know anything about DELQA, but if it is
compatible with DEUNA/DELUA then it should work too. Are you interested
in kernel hacking? I think i'm rather familiar with what needs to be
done to getting NetBSD run om uVAX.
