I have a suspicion that the ADB driver for the Cuda chip could perhaps be 
coerced into working with the Egret chip too. But the changes are probably 
non-trivial and there's precious little public documentation about these

If the Egret driver ever worked, it would most likely have been Linux 2.2 
(Debian 3.1). That is, before drivers/macintosh/via-maciisi.c came into 
existence, back when the driver was known as arch/m68k/mac/adb-bus.c
