Does uhci work on macppc/big-endian?

I bought a cheap USB 2.0 PCI card (a Kingwin U2PCI-5), hoping to use it on my Powermac G4 dual proc... however, while it attaches fine, NetBSD says "device problem, disabling port n" whenever I plug in a USB device.

(It doesn't seem to be quite working yet.)" Then Izumi Tsutsui posted a patch <http://www.jp.netbsd.org/ja/JP/ml/port-powerpc-ja/200003/msg00029.html>, which seems to have been checked in as revision 1.88 "Replace LE() macro with le32toh()/le32toh()." That patch did add a few le32toh()s where there was no LE() (mainly in DEBUG code), but it's mostly as the checkin comment says. So, does anyone know the status of uhci on big-endian machines? Still not quite working yet? Anything I can do to help get it working? (FWIW, I'm actually more interested in using the card under MacOS X, however my USB 2.0 scanner doesn't seem to work. System Profiler shows it connected, but the scanner driver hangs. A mouse works fine though... so I wanted to see if NetBSD was able to do anything with it.) -- -- Name: Dave Huang | Mammal, mammal / their names are called / INet: khym <at> azeotrope.org | they raise a paw / the bat, the cat / FurryMUCK: Dahan | dolphin and dog / koala bear and hog -- TMBG Dahan: Hani G Y+C 30 Y++ L+++ W- C++ T++ A+ E+ S++ V++ F- Q+++ P+ B+ PA+ PL++
