These are unrelated to Darwin anyhow.  The second one is because the
tulip driver isn't being as heavily tested as it used to be and Jeff
Garzik is (was) in the process of moving.  2.4.5-final or so broke tulip
on numerous cards, x86 and ppc.  CONFIG_DE4X5 should still work tho.

You're having no luck w/ the old aic7xxx driver?
