Is it just a flag for which glue code to use?  IIRC they're pretty 
similar but it's not a perfect match.  (I back ported one driver, and 
mostly just needed to change the PCI interface, and discard a bunch of 
statistics it wanted to produce)

No matter how big the bell, if you only tap it, it can give out only a
faint sound.  We must understand thoroughly that the weakness of the blow,
not a fault of the bell makes the sound poor.
