    The card supports I/O addresses above 64k, i think. It has a PCMCIA
    slot as well on it, allowing access to the same

    I have put my dmesg over here It
    looks like lot of workarounds in my BIOS to me probably, couldn't
    really make out much in there

    The bridge features from the vendor are like this ..

    PCI 2.2 Compatible
    DVB Common Interface EN50221 Compliant
    Philips I2C 2.0 Compliant
    Master mode
    UART – RS232
    Receiver mode
    Support PTC PT2225
    TSMC 0.25um 5M1P CMOS Technology
    PQFP 144 Package

    2.5V Core / 3.3V IO
    2660x2560 um2
    100K Gate
    4 Clock Domains
    99.6% ATPG Test Coverage
    32 scan chains

    Logic synthesis – Synopsys 2003.12-SP1

    DVB Common Interface EN50221 Compliant
    Memory Mode
    Support 8/16 bit
    IO Mode
    Indirect Read/Write
    Issue address and data thru PCI local register
    Pseudo GPIO Pins

    Common Access (CA)
    Card reader – 7816 compliant
    DVB CSA / B-CAS Multi2
    PID/session filters

    Receiver mode only – 6 bits data
    Configurable BAUD rate
    9600 to 115.2K
    16 Word FIFO
    Master mode only
    400k/s default

    One of the things that really confused me was, on in lspci it
    always shows BIST is running. on 2.6.20, it is not there at all.

    If this is a bug in the BIOS, i am wondering how the older revisions
    of the same bridge works. The last two devices in that lspci output
    are Rev 01 devices
