Lava Octopus-550 8-port serial card support on i386?

Hey All

first - Happy new year to all!

now to the point at hand-

I am writing to ask if anyone knows if support is planned for the 8-port
Lava Octopus-550 card?   Or should we just return the 8 port in favor of
several of the supported 'Quattro' cards?


The page at http://www.openbsd.org/i386.html suggests that Lava's other
cards might be supported by the puc device however, the 550 is not
recognized by my kernel, as seen below-

first, here is what my kernel spits out when it finds a single 8-port
PCI Lava card:

vendor "Lava", unknown product 0x180 (class communications, subclass 
serial, rev 0x00) at pci0 dev 6 function 0 not configured
vendor "Lava", unknown product 0x181 (class communications, subclass
serial, rev 0x00) at pci0 dev 6 function 1 not configured

next, here is an excerpt from my kernel config (2.8-STABLE)
which shows the relevant portions in regards to serial devices:

puc*    at pci?                         # PCI "universal" communication

Thanks in advance for any advice,
