So how far are you on getting AGP GART support for the UniNorth into your
tree? I'd consider helping, but I have _no_ idea about AGP GART
programming at all. Obviously at this point, it's pretty preliminary
(black screen and lockup on an iBook FireWire with UniNorth and Mobility
M3), but I would definitely like to see how it progresses, at least. PCI
GART is kinda slow. :)

Is the UniNorth GART support being based on the stuff from Darwin? (I
would assume so, since I'm guessing Apple can be kinda tight-fisted when
it comes to providing docs for some of their more proprietary stuff...)
