+// Revision History:
+// 23 September 1991 MAG   First Draft Started...through...
+// 11 October 1991   ...   Continuing development...
+//  6 August 1993          Added support for ISA-4 (asic) which is architected
+//                         as an ISA-CEX with a single 4-port box.
+// 20 December 1996  AKM   Version for Linux
+The IntelliPort-II and IntelliPort-IIEX products occupy a block of eight (8)
+addresses in the host's I/O space.
+Some addresses are used to transfer data to/from the board, some to transfer
+so-called "mailbox" messages, and some to read bit-mapped status information.
+While all the products in the line are functionally similar, some use a 16-bit
+data path to transfer data while others use an 8-bit path. Also, the use of
+command /status/mailbox registers differs slightly between the II and IIEX
+branches of the family.
+The host determines what type of board it is dealing with by reading a string of
+sixteen characters from the board. These characters are always placed in the
+fifo by the board's local processor whenever the board is reset (either from
+power-on or under software control) and are known as the "Power-on Reset
+Message." In order that this message can be read from either type of board, the
+hardware registers used in reading this message are the same. Once this message
+has been read by the host, then it has the information required to operate.
+General Differences between boards:
+The greatest structural difference is between the -II and -IIEX families of
+product. The -II boards use the Am4701 dual 512x8 bidirectional fifo to support
+the data path, mailbox registers, and status registers. This chip contains some
+features which are not used in the IntelliPort-II products; a description of
+these is omitted here. Because of these many features, it contains many
+registers, too many to access directly within a small address space. They are
+accessed by first writing a value to a "pointer" register. This value selects
+the register to be accessed.  The next read or write to that address accesses
+the selected register rather than the pointer register.
+The -IIEX boards use a proprietary design similar to the Am4701 in function. But
+because of a simpler, more streamlined design it doesn't require so many
+registers. This means they can be accessed directly in single operations rather
+than through a pointer register.
+Besides these differences, there are differences in whether 8-bit or 16-bit
+transfers are used to move data to the board.
+The -II boards are capable only of 8-bit data transfers, while the -IIEX boards
+may be configured for either 8-bit or 16-bit data transfers. If the on-board DIP
+switch #8 is ON, and the card has been installed in a 16-bit slot, 16-bit
+transfers are supported (and will be expected by the standard loadware). The
+on-board firmware can determine the position of the switch, and whether the
+board is installed in a 16-bit slot; it supplies this information to the host as
+part of the power-up reset message.
+The configuration switch (#8) and slot selection do not directly configure the
+hardware. It is up to the on-board loadware and host-based drivers to act
+according to the selected options. That is, loadware and drivers could be
+written to perform 8-bit transfers regardless of the state of the DIP switch or
+slot (and in a diagnostic environment might well do so). Likewise, 16-bit
+transfers could be performed as long as the card is in a 16-bit slot.
+Note the slot selection and DIP switch selection are provided separately: a
+board running in 8-bit mode in a 16-bit slot has a greater range of possible
+interrupts to choose from; information of potential use to the host.
+All 8-bit data transfers are done in the same way, regardless of whether on a
+-II board or a -IIEX board.
+The host must consider two things then: 1) whether a -II or -IIEX product is
+being used, and 2) whether an 8-bit or 16-bit data path is used.
+A further difference is that -II boards always have a 512-byte fifo operating in
+each direction. -IIEX boards may use fifos of varying size; this size is
+reported as part of the power-up message.
+I/O Map Of IntelliPort-II and IntelliPort-IIEX boards:
+(Relative to the chosen base address)
+Addr  R/W      IntelliPort-II    IntelliPort-IIEX
+----  ---      --------------    ----------------
+0     R/W      Data Port (byte)  Data Port (byte or word)
+1     R/W      (Not used)        (MSB of word-wide data written to Data Port)
+2     R        Status Register   Status Register
+2     W        Pointer Register  Interrupt Mask Register
+3     R/W      (Not used)        Mailbox Registers (6 bits: 11111100)
+4,5   --       Reserved for future products
+6     --       Reserved for future products
+7     R        Guaranteed to have no effect
+7     W        Hardware reset of board.
+All data transfers are performed using the even i/o address. If byte-wide data
+transfers are being used, do INB/OUTB operations on the data port. If word-wide
+transfers are used, do INW/OUTW operations. In some circumstances (such as
+reading the power-up message) you will do INB from the data port, but in this
+case the MSB of each word read is lost. When accessing all other unreserved
+registers, use byte operations only.
+// Mandatory Includes:
+#include "ip2types.h"
+#include "i2os.h"    /* For any o.s., compiler, or host-related issues */
+// Manifests for the I/O map:
+// R/W: Data port (byte) for IntelliPort-II,
+// R/W: Data port (byte or word) for IntelliPort-IIEX
+// Incoming or outgoing data passes through a FIFO, the status of which is
+// available in some of the bits in FIFO_STATUS. This (bidirectional) FIFO is
+// the primary means of transferring data, commands, flow-control, and status
+// information between the host and board.
+#define FIFO_DATA 0
+// Another way of passing information between the the board and the host is
+// through "mailboxes". Unlike a FIFO, a mailbox holds only a single byte of
+// data.  Writing data to the mailbox causes a status bit to be set, and
+// potentially interrupting the intended receiver. The sender has some way to
+// determine whether the data has been read yet; as soon as it has, it may send
+// more. The mailboxes are handled differently on -II and -IIEX products, as
+// suggested below.
+// Read: Status Register for IntelliPort-II or -IIEX
+// The presence of any bit set here will cause an interrupt to the host,
+// provided the corresponding bit has been unmasked in the interrupt mask
+// register. Furthermore, interrupts to the host are disabled globally until the
+// loadware selects the irq line to use. With the exception of STN_MR, the bits

+// The following exists only on the Intelliport-IIEX, and indicates that the
+// board has not read the last outgoing mailbox data yet. In the IntelliPort-II,
+// the outgoing mailbox may be read back: a zero indicates the board has read
+// the data.
+#define STE_OUT_MAIL 0x80  // Outbound mailbox full (!)
+// The following bits are defined differently for -II and -IIEX boards. Code
+// which relies on these bits will need to be functionally different for the two
+// types of boards and should be generally avoided because of the additional
+// complexity this creates:
+// Bit map of status bits only on -II
+// Fifo has been RESET (cleared when the status register is read). Note that
+// this condition cannot be masked and would always interrupt the host, except
+// that the hardware reset also disables interrupts globally from the board
+// until re-enabled by loadware. This could also arise from the

+// whether mailbox is available for more outbound data, use the STE_OUT_MAIL bit
+// in FIFO_STATUS. Moreover, although the Outbound Mailbox can be read back by
+// setting MX_OUTMAIL_RSEL, it is NOT cleared when the board reads it, as is the
+// case with the -II boards. For this reason, FIFO_MAIL is normally used to read
+// the inbound FIFO, and MX_OUTMAIL_RSEL kept clear. (See above for
+// MX_OUTMAIL_RSEL description.)

+// Actually, there will be an effect, in that the operation is sure to generate
+// a bus cycle: viz., an I/O byte Read. This fact can be used to enforce short

+#define  FIFO_NOP    0x7
+The IntelliPort-II and -IIEX boards are reset in three ways: Power-up, channel
+reset, and via a write to the reset register described above. For products using
+the ISA bus, these three sources of reset are equvalent. For MCA and EISA buses,
+the Power-up and channel reset sources cause additional hardware initialization
+which should only occur at system startup time.
+The third type of reset, called a "command reset", is done by writing any data
+to the FIFO_RESET address described above. This resets the on-board processor,
+FIFO, UARTS, and associated hardware.
+This passes control of the board to the bootstrap firmware, which performs a
+Power-On Self Test and which detects its current configuration. For example,
+-IIEX products determine the size of FIFO which has been installed, and the
+number and type of expansion boxes attached.
+This and other information is then written to the FIFO in a 16-byte data block
+to be read by the host. This block is guaranteed to be present within two (2)
+seconds of having received the command reset. The firmware is now ready to
+receive loadware from the host.
+It is good practice to perform a command reset to the board explicitly as part
+of your software initialization.  This allows your code to properly restart from
+a soft boot. (Many systems do not issue channel reset on soft boot).
+Because of a hardware reset problem on some of the Cirrus Logic 1400's which are
+used on the product, it is recommended that you reset the board twice, separated
+by an approximately 50 milliseconds delay. (VERY approximately: probably ok to
+be off by a factor of five. The important point is that the first command reset
+in fact generates a reset pulse on the board. This pulse is guaranteed to last
+less than 10 milliseconds. The additional delay ensures the 1400 has had the
+chance to respond sufficiently to the first reset. Why not a longer delay? Much
+more than 50 milliseconds gets to be noticable, but the board would still work.
+Once all 16 bytes of the Power-on Reset Message have been read, the bootstrap
+firmware is ready to receive loadware.
+Note on Power-on Reset Message format:
+The various fields have been designed with future expansion in view.
+Combinations of bitfields and values have been defined which define products
+which may not currently exist. This has been done to allow drivers to anticipate
+the possible introduction of products in a systematic fashion. This is not
+intended to suggest that each potential product is actually under consideration.

+Loadware may be sent to the board in two ways:
+1) It may be read from a (binary image) data file block by block as each block
+	is sent to the board. This is only possible when the initialization is
+	performed by code which can access your file system. This is most suitable
+	for diagnostics and appications which use the interface library directly.
+2) It may be hard-coded into your source by including a .h file (typically
+	supplied by Computone), which declares a data array and initializes every
+	element. This acheives the same result as if an entire loadware file had 
+	been read into the array.
+	This requires more data space in your program, but access to the file system
+	is not required. This method is more suited to driver code, which typically
+	is running at a level too low to access the file system directly.
+At present, loadware can only be generated at Computone.
+All Loadware begins with a header area which has a particular format. This
+includes a magic number which identifies the file as being (purportedly)
+loadware, CRC (for the loader), and version information.
+// Format of loadware block
