Well, the mapping of PCI space looks more or less CHRP. But they
don't have OF, only a very simple firmware. And I don't know
if they provide PerP like residual data either (MVME2xxx and 5100
do, it's a bit bogus but not as much as many people would like you to
believe, some parts of PreP residual data parsing never worked because
people who wrote it obviously never understood the spec).

Hmm, the 5500 has two Ethernet interfaces at least: the one inside
the Discovery and a gigabit Ethernet (Intel 82554). As long as one
works... But so far nobody has expressed interest, and for my part
I've trying to get offers for these boards from the distributor
in Spain since early July. Nothing yet...
