I know you said "roughly speaking", but I don't think you're quite right. I
only have a 16-bit card, that prior to kernel 2.4.x used i82365.o and I had to
change it to use yenta when I installed the 2.4 kernel. It's certainly possible
to autodetect the card - but I doubt you can really say whether it should use
yenta or i82365. The best you could do is determine that this _is_ a 32-bit
card, therefore it _must_ use yenta - but for 16-bit cards I've seen some people
claim they had to continue using i82365 and others had to switch.
