Yes. That is very interesting...


1.	Some guys is trying to use HTX connector to add co-processor
2.	Some guys is using GPU on PCI-E...


Current code treat that coproc as one extra HT chain...

I think he's talking about enabling the use of: 


with the board. That chip has already had my interest for awhile. :)

What coprocessor is that? A Xilinx FPGA? Are 2891 delivered with those
per default? Can LinuxBIOs fuel them with code now? 

This sounds _very_ interesting.
