My E4000 does.  Rather nicely in fact :-D  2.4 and 2.6 kernels seem to
work, as well as vservers with some patching.

I can't find a quick description of how discover is supposed to work but
1.7.7 (sarge) runs on a multi-SBUS machine and detects the only device
that has Linux drivers but which are not loaded, althought this is only
given when --debug is enabled.
