Well, that one's 36 bits, but it's unclear whether that driver would 
actually be likely to access anything over 4GB. It's possible that 
there's just some general problem with 64-bit DMA on that machine.

The fact that even stuff like lspci and MII is breaking seems odd, 
though. It could be that model of card doesn't like the PCIDAC register 
bit being set (maybe it means something different on that model, or 
something).

I suppose a publicly accessible datasheet for these chips is too much to 
hope for?
