Yep. It's sitting in an SGI machine room.

Yeah, that would be right. Have you had a look at pci_fixup_ioc3()?
(That's the network card that seems to come with the Origin 200). I
bet it's something similar.
Just, the base address the card (PCI bus?) is spitting out is very odd:
eth0: SGI AceNIC Gigabit Ethernet at 0xfe7fc000, irq 8
The card is in slot 6, so I'd expect the base address to be 0x8900000.
Anyway, it dies on this:
writel(HW_RESET | (HW_RESET << 24), ®s->HostCtrl);
(depending on the base address... I hard coded in a more
sane one, but it still crashes)
