first step is to introduce GIO devices similair to PCI devices. My
current working GIO device is solid impact. I also looked at
supporting Phobos G160 cards, but the current set of 2114x drivers
is not useable for that...

The big missing thing in the GIO framework right now is a bullet proof
detection for non standard GIO cards, like newport and XZ cards. They
don't provide ID information...
