Not exactly. There is the old MacTech.pdf which gives some insight into
the macio ASIC (though it did evolve significantly since then), and open
firmware device-tree is the main source of information.
I've been thinking about doing a talk about the Apple HW for linux
kongress or such, but with the recent announce, I suppose it's
pointless. I suppose I could still try to write a document giving an
overview of how the thing is setup.
