Would I be correct in thinking the main blocker to this is the *_ff features
used by the S2-6400 card? There's plenty of other cards using this chipset
that don't need that part.

Would a solution for now to be a driver with the ff components stripped out,
and then the ff API work can be done later when / if there's any interest?

I guess a problem would be finding a maintainer, I'm happy to put together
a stripped down driver just supporting the TBS card I use (I already have
one I use with dkms), but I'm not sure I have the time or knowledge of this
chipset to be a maintainer. Unfortunately my workplace is phasing out
these cards otherwise I'd try and get them to sponsor me rather than do it
on my own time!
