This would be that EISA 710 card you sent me, right :-)

I do actually have plans to add it in in the future.  I talked to
Richard Hirst about getting sim710 working again (migration to the
device model, DMA model and cli/sti removal).  The upshot is that  we're
going to gut it and make it use the 53c700 chip driver.  In theory it
should be just a matter of adding the EISA probe ID and parsing the
registry entries to get it to work.  Do you happen to have any docs for
this (really, probably all I need to know is the SCSI clock speed
feeding the 710 chip).

Of course, for this card, it's also predicated on getting EISA to work
again on pa-risc after Marc Zyngier's sysfs changes...
