If the driver was written hardware indepenend, an if you
took care about properly interfacing the hardware to
your uClinux device (byteswap issues), then the driver
should work ootb, when telling io/irq as module parameter.

At least that's the theory. Usualy, you will have to do
a few platform dependend modification here and there ...
(i.e. activating interrupts in the IMR manualy etc.)

best regards
