I stopped working on the Deskstation Tyne port in the beginning of '95 when
I noticed that my board was broken and missbehaving when executing memory
accesses in just the right order and timing. This stupid hardware problem
did waste 3 months of my time ... Deskstation fixed the board but I never
went back to working on this port since I got other systems in the meantime.
The board is pretty PC like with the exception of some magic in the DMA
stuff; it would be a realativly easy job to make the Tyne port work again.
