Matt Porter had a fix for the problems with the 21143, but I don't know
where they can be found. Perhaps it will be simpler now that vger is back
(although I won't switch back to vger for at least a few weeks).

BTW: my driver for the Universe (PCI<->VME bridge chip) is now close to
its final state. It still needs some cleanup, but I hope to be able to ask
for testers next week.  (Even DMA is working now, this was quite a
headache to get right and it took me several iterations to find a simple
and relatively easy to use interface for the callers).
