contact Marvell. I've done so in the past, and they did answer (though
it was negative in my case).
Also, very much hanging out on a limb here, you might try to attach the
sk98sol driver. I have never tried it myself, but IIRC, it worked on
some Marvell chipsets as that was what later SysKonnect cards used.
