Dear Uwe,

Sorry for there is no errata sheet. Maybe I can add more PCI IDs
for our chipset first. I can provide some recommend setting written
at internal document, if needed.

That doesn't sound too bad, IMHO. If the only real differences are PCI
IDs of some devices and small changes in some registers, then the 966(L)
code could easily be adapted to also work with 965(L), correct?

Adding more PCI IDs is trivial and we can do that without datasheet
access I think, but the "different value to be filled for bug fix"
could be a problem if it's not documented publically...

Is there some errata sheet we can look at and/or do you know how to fix
the 966(L) code in svn to make it work for 965(L), too?

Thanks, Uwe.
