Sorry, I've missed this message originally, but noticed it today when 
it was forwarded to sparclinux. In theory, I could build and upload 
those, however looking at the list I get an impression that all these 
drivers were only available on sparc32 machines which we no longer 
support (with possible exception of cg6 which was available in some 
Ultra 1s, as I seem to recall). 

Does anyone on the list have counterexamples, i.e. sparc64 machines 
(Ultra 1 or newer) running with any of those drivers?
