One thing to remember is that the HTX card most BIOSes used for
bringup is InfiniPath, and we are a tunnel, where the link going to
the CPU for our HTX card just happens to be link 1 due to some
oddnesses in pinout of our chip (oops).
You can properly query for this, but I don't know if the existing
LinuxBIOS code does that.
You might also want to look at the new HTX BIOS Guide put out by the
HyperTransport consortium. In theory it has this suggestion and some
other good ones.
