Hi all,

just wondering if the onboard VIA VT8233X chipset is actually working in
-current for any of you.  I played a bit with trying to get it to work on 
4.9 by patching a bit in the pcm code with updates for the via8233.* files
but haven't gotten a peep out of the thing except for a chatty bios message
or two during boot.

(just lucked into this system, so I haven't migrated to -current yet).

Hope to be able to at least help test things a bit with you guys now. This 
thing really beats the crap out of P4's...

CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3200+ (2002.57-MHz 686-class CPU)
  Origin = "AuthenticAMD"  Id = 0xf48  Stepping = 8

  AMD Features=0xe0500000<<b20>,AMIE,<b29>,DSP,3DNow!>


pcm0: <VIA VT8233X> port 0xc800-0xc8ff irq 5 at device 17.5 on pci0

Yours truly,
