if_wi attachment for mac-io

In my quest to get some form of wireless on my TiBook, I decided to  
write the necessary mac-io attachment for if_wi (putting the if_bwi  
off to the side for now).  However, it appears that there's an endian  
issue with it:

pci0: driver added

wi0: Hermes Firmware: Station (0.0.0)
wi0: Sorry, this card is not supported (type 1, firmware ver 0)
device_attach: wi0 attach returned 45

Is there a way to add a shim underneath the driver, or something else  
so as not to be too intrusive to the if_wi driver?
