Don't the funky cluster fiber connector cards in the Alphas support 64-bit
address space?

I also had a funny feeling some of the newer IO cards were going this way,
mostly for using with the UltraSparc.

The Adaptec 64-bit stuff is only 64-bit data which seems more useful for
marketing than anything else.... (unless you really are saturating you PCI
bus with SCSI transfers).
