I've got one of these suckers on my motherboard. It's very similar to the UMC
8672/8673, as far as I can tell. Of course, it doesn't work with those drivers
in the kernel.

It's PCI and seems pretty speedy under GameEnvironment95 and DOS. I'd like to
hack support into the kernel but can't seem to find any specs on it. Has anyone
had any luck with this particular holy grail?

I'm toying with the notion of running the DOS driver through DOSEmu and monitor
the ports that it tweaks and poke and prod (at the price of my data).

If it helps anyone, here's the /proc/pci from it.
Bus 0, device 18, function 1:
IDE interface: UMC UM8886BF (rev 16).
Fast devsel. IRQ 14. Master Capable. No bursts.
I/O at 0x170.
I/O at 0x374.
I/O at 0xffe0.
I/O at 0xfff0.
I/O at 0xffa0.
Bus 0, device 18, function 0:
ISA bridge: UMC UM8886A (rev 14).
Medium devsel. Master Capable. No bursts.
Bus 0, device 16, function 0:
Host bridge: UMC UM8881F (rev 4).
Medium devsel. Master Capable. No bursts.

Which is worse: ignorance or apathy?  Who knows?  Who cares?
