Very nice, indeed.

Maybe not. 3c597 may be tricky to support, because it does
bus-mastering, which is really a no-go given the state of the current
EISA code on IP22. I'll try to do something about it when 2.5 is
running on the IP22 (if it ever runs...).

Interesting is quite an understatement... :-)
