Pretty much everything but E10k has been tested (sun4u). To be honest, a
distributions hardware "support" is defined more by the kernel that what
the distribution does. IOW, we support whatever the kernel supports. Our
current (just released) 2.2 version is based on Linux Kernel 2.2.17.

As for the sun4[cdm] line, we seem to not work well with ss2, but all
others work in one form or another (with the exception of some of those
laptops like tadpole, I think).
