Hi Chris,

I wrote a generic PCI IO driver when testing the
Yosemite 440EP, take a look at the code, its fairly
well commented. You probably just need to add the
PCI vendor ID for your target board:
(or you can echo the deviceID:vendorID to the
sysfs node for the driver)

There's some comments in here on it:

For example, on an x86 system, I was looking for
a PLX PCI9054 10b5:9054, and then on the yosemite
board I was looking for the same hardware.

In your case, its not clear from your email whether you
are on a 440GX looking for another device, or on a host
looking for a 440GX. Either way, the driver should work.
