I tested sk(4), nge(4), ti(4), and lge(4) cards on my sparc64
box.  Unfortunately, they all need work before they'll work on
sparc64.  However, bge(4) should work as wpaul@ converted it to
use the busdma(9) portable kernel bus memory mapping API.  I have
not personally tried putting my bge card into the sparc, though.

The GA302T is listed as supported in the bge(4) man page so my
guess is it would work with that.
