|The BSD HIL driver should pretty much "just work."
|There are some differences in the register layout, but the 700 info should
|all be available in the Mach code or the LASI ERS.  I will send out info
|about the HIL ERS (part #, etc.) when I am at work tomorrow.  Presumably,
|someone at HP can then dig up a copy.

A few notes.  LASI doesn't have HIL, it has PS2.  For workstations
of that vintage (that might have a LASI), the HIL megafunction was
dropped into the WAX ASIC, which also has teh EISA bus bridge.

I've found the docs on the I/O subsystem for the immediately preceding
set of workstations (715/33 /50, 735, etc), and have had it on my
agenda to get it ready.  If that's a critical need, I'll try to
get to it this week.
