Unless Paul had specific reasons not to use the generic NCR53C9x driver
code for the mac53c94 driver, I'd say we should start from scratch using
the generic driver code base. I know it looks messy and a lot of the Sparc
cruft should be stripped out (IIRC Sparc still uses esp.c) but it might be
worth the trouble.

Problem is, the only Powermacs I could use for testing are a 7100 and a G3
(233 MHz desktop). Which one of these does use the 53C94?
