Hi Sverre -- I am interested... I've actually already got the 6000-4
firmware, got the pcidevs setup, and worked w/ the existing driver
code to get the device attached... at this point, it's failing w/
eeprom errors (two of them, don't recall what there are, at the
moment). If you've got something in some state of "working", you're
further ahead than I am, though, and I'd love to see that code.
