apparently has been updated on HEAD to reflect that U1E and U2 are
supported quite some time ago, but hrs forgot to MFC that change. I
just did the MFC.
Btw., the 3500/4500 are still mentioned as having no support for their
Sbus-based SCSI (fibrechannel) controller. ISTR someone recently
wrote the SCSI controller does work though, can I take this for
granted and update the file as well? I should get access to a 3500
sometime soon, but so far cannot verify it.

The QFE actually *is* a quad HME card, that's why FreeBSD uses the
same driver for it. What kind of problems do you have with it?
I've only used PCI-based QFEs so far, but never encountered any
problems with them -- they even make a fine Quad card in IA32 machines
now that FreeBSD supports them outside of OpenFirmware systems.
