Here is what I have in 'drivers/pci/pci.ids' :

2500 82820 820 (Camino) Chipset Host Bridge (MCH)
1043 801c P3C-2000 system chipset
2501 82820 820 (Camino) Chipset Host Bridge (MCH)
1043 801c P3C-2000 system chipset
250b 82820 820 (Camino) Chipset Host Bridge
250f 82820 820 (Camino) Chipset PCI to AGP Bridge

So I guess that 0x2500 and 0x2501 should be initialized in the same way,
through the same routines. Unfortunately, I dont have such a machine to
test... Can you send what 'lspci -ev' shows ?

It worked, but in which way ? Did you test X+OpenGL apps to see whether
it did the trick ? The fact that the module loads itself is not always
sufficient to say that it works (believe me :-)

With your custom patch, or with the 'generic' stuff ?
