New NCR 53c710 driver
At Richard's recommendation, we have switched from the ncr53c7xx driver to the sim710 driver. Both drivers drive the NCR 710 chips found in later 700 series workstations, but sim710 has a cleaner design.

This Week's CVS Activity

Richard fixed some problems with the sim710 driver.
Paul and Grant fixed some minor problems.
