Looking for a Linux device driver tool to make drivers for custom PCI cards.
I heard that Univ. of Indiana had written code for a universal PCI driver,
but I have not been able to find it.
Any help would be appreciated.

I need to add Linux support for custom designed PCI card. The card
contains the PLX9080 PCI bridge, controlling the card's local bus in
What I need is the access to the memory and I/O registers connected to the
local bus of the card. The possibility of DMA transfers would be also
However the PLX9080 belongs to the unfamous (because of closed specs) I2O
So my questions are:
1) Is it possible to support the required functions basing on freely
2) What functionalities are assured by the Linux PCI driver itself?
Does it perform the mapping of the PCI card local bus to the CPU's
memory or I/O address space?
3) Can the required functions be implemented in the "user mode" driver, or
is it necessary to write the kernel module?
