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

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

Simulation – Cadence NCsim 5.1
DRC/LVS – Synopsys Hercules 2003.12

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
