Subject:   Problem with loading another pci driver for the same card
Message-ID:  <>

Hello, everyone,

If the kernel already has a pci driver for a pci card, how could I load 
another loadable driver for the same card?

I wrote a Kernel module PCI driver for one pci card. After the kernel is up, 
it automatically identified the card, and load its driver. If I want to use 
my own driver, the driver can't be probed correctly. When you use 'kldload' 
to load a pci driver, I think the kernel only probe the card without driver 
loaded. So, my driver can never be loaded, since the kernel doesn't probe 
the pci card I want.

Do you know how I could load my driver?

The output from pciscan is in the following. I want to load a pci driver to
sab0@pci0:31:0:        class=0x060100 card=0x00000000 chip=0x248c8086 
rev=0x02 hdr=0x00

I think the system only probe the cards with "none@....".

thank you very much.
