PCI bridge support with MontaVista

Hello all,

We are in the early stages of a new embedded MPC860T project and we are
looking at using the MontaVista distribution of Linux for the OS.  We need
PCI support but are flexible on what PCI bridge we will use.

What we need to know is what PCI bridges are supported by with this
distribution.  I found some PPC PCI bridge support patches mentioned
online, so I am assuming there may be some PCI bridges that could be
supported by applying a patch, if the support does not yet exist with
MontaVista's distribution.  Are there any cases like this?

I did not see information regarding PCI bridge support on MontaVista's
site, so I am asking here.  We really need to know what is supported so we
can make a choice on what to use.  Any further information would be
helpful, regarding ease of use and cost, or any other personal opinions. I
have worked with the QSpanII with another OS, but we had to write our own
drivers for that.

Thank you for your help,

Jeff Studer
