It's only partly by accident. Early on in the development, someone put in
a fixed mapping with physical == virtual for the I/O space. Lots of the
drivers for internal devices on m68k macs take advantage of this and
use the physical addresses as pointers. They should be fixed, I guess.

No, I haven't done much of anything with it. I do have a Q840AV, but the
DMA engine I really wanted to get working was the one on the IIfx. The
disk performance of the mac_scsi driver makes the IIfx nearly useless.
I almost got it working, but I can't figure out how to get the interrupts
for the DMA completion to work properly. The DMA for the AV models is
several steps down on my list at the moment. There are a couple other
people that have looked at it, but noone is especially active.
