And I should probably have added; the assumptions you can make about the 
state of your device are very few.  There is a *very* good chance that 
your device will *just* have been powered up, and had the BARs set to 
something sane.  That's it.  You should not make any assumptions about 
setup done by the BIOS, firmware, etc.

rivals and unfortunately opponents also.  But not because people want
to be opponents, rather because the tasks and relationships force
people to take different points of view.  [Dr. Fritz Todt]
