from a project decompiling (i believe its) a linux based linksys
router which uses the same chipset?

to later find smb to be documented.

Heh, ok. A trick for spying IOs: give the driver an unmapped area of
memory instead of the IOs it expects. You'll trap on all accesses. Then
emulate the load/store access (and keep a trace).

Yeah, we do something similar. I don't fully understand all of the code,
but I can log all IO accesses with it. No DMA of course, but that
doesn't really bother me since we already fully understand the DMA
engine and we can use the OSX driver in PIO mode.

Excellent. Is there some place where this is beeing discussed ? What is
the status ?
