sym2 too -- 32, 40 and 64-bit, but with the restriction of the 64-bit
mode that it's limited to accessing 16 4GB segments.

Sounds good to me.

So let's look at the sym2 implementation to see how this would work.
A straight diff -u is not terribly helpful, So let's try a more verbose
context diff:

*** 1625,1657 ****

static int sym_setup_bus_dma_mask(struct sym_hcb *np)
{
! #if SYM_CONF_DMA_ADDRESSING_MODE == 0
! if (pci_set_dma_mask(np->s.device, 0xffffffffUL))
! goto out_err32;
! #else
! #if SYM_CONF_DMA_ADDRESSING_MODE == 1
! #define PciDmaMask 0xffffffffffULL
! #elif SYM_CONF_DMA_ADDRESSING_MODE == 2
! #define PciDmaMask 0xffffffffffffffffULL
! #endif
if (np->features & FE_DAC) {
! if (!pci_set_dma_mask(np->s.device, PciDmaMask)) {
! np->use_dac = 1;
! printf_info("%s: using 64 bit DMA addressing\n",
! sym_name(np));
! } else {
! if (pci_set_dma_mask(np->s.device, 0xffffffffUL))
! goto out_err32;
! }
}
! #undef PciDmaMask
! #endif
return 0;
! out_err32:
! printf_warning("%s: 32 BIT DMA ADDRESSING NOT SUPPORTED\n",
! sym_name(np));
! return -1;
}

! struct pci_dev *pdev = &np->s.device;
!
if (np->features & FE_DAC) {

! if (required_mask > 0xffffffffUL)
! goto use_dac;
}

There's an obvious problem here -- no error checking on the second
dma_set_mask(). How were we going to indicate "I can't do that"
errors again?

himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
