I think that is the newest Intel chiset we have support for, so that code
may be the place to start. I beleive the 3100 base code started out as
e7501, and the 3100 code is much more updated. The Intel 3100 is supported
by Ed Swierk, he is a really smart guy, and may be able to offer some help
if you have any questions, as well as any if us on the mailing list :-)
