Is there already a non-DEC controller firmware archive somewhere? If
not, do you have any interest in adding relevant non-DEC controller
For example I've had an Emulex QD21 Q-bus ESDI controller for a while
that was dead. I recently pulled and read the EPROM and found it
appeared to be almost completely erased. I eventually got another
working QD21 and copied its EPROM into the dead one and now it works
fine too. I would have been out of luck with the dead one if I
couldn't find a good firmware image for it.
