RE: [uCsimm] uCsimm i/o pins

Hi Mohamed,

you can search for 0xfff in the kernel tree. For example the cs8900 ethernet
controller has some code for the sleep pin, which is an external i/o pin.
Don't worry about i/o pins, you almost have to make sure that you don't
change the chip selects pins. Read the adress, and/or only the bits you
want to change and write it back. If you're worried to put to outputs together
by fault, just put a 10k resistor in between and measure the voltage across it.
