NAME
     fpa, fea — device drivers for DEC FDDI controllers

SYNOPSIS
     device fpa
     device fea

     FreeBSD only:
     device fddi

DESCRIPTION
     The fpa and fea device drivers provide support for the DEC DEFPA PCI FDDI
     Controller and the DEC DEFEA EISA FDDI Controller, respectively.  All
     variants of either controller are supported including the DAS and SAS
     configurations.

DIAGNOSTICS
     fea%d: error: desired IRQ of %d does not match device's actual IRQ (%d)
     The device probe detected that the DEFEA board is configured for a dif‐
     ferent interrupt than the one specified in the kernel configuration file.

     fea%d: error: memory not enabled! ECU reconfiguration required  The
     device probe found that no device memory had been configured on the
     DEFEA.  Although the DEFEA can be configured with no device memory, this
     driver requires a minimum of 1K device memory to be set up.  The ECU
     (EISA Configuration Utility) will need to be run to change the settings.

CAVEATS
     Normally, the device driver will not enable the reception of SMT frames.
     However if the IFF_LINK1 flag is set, the device driver will enable the
     reception of SMT frames and pass them up to the Berkeley Packet Filter
     for processing.
