I don't think so. Obviously this is "the right thing to do[TM]".

Just beeing curious, are the onboard ethernet and scsi controllers
detected as "PMAZ-AA" and "PMAD-AA" by the Turbochannel detection?

drivers/net/declance.c might be a good start. You'll need to set up the
pointer arrays in dec_lance_init() and probably need to modify cp_to_buf()
and cp_from_buf() for your memory layout. Shouldn't be too complicated.

Happy hacking.
