     neo -- NeoMagic MagicMedia 256 audio device driver

     neo*   at pci? dev ? function ?
     audio* at audiobus?

     The neo driver provides support for the NeoMagic MagicMedia 256AV and 256ZX AC'97 audio
     devices, found on many laptops.

     The MagicMedia 256AV also comes in a variant (usually found on Dell and HP laptops) that
     works in Windows Sound System emulation mode, not in AC'97 mode.  That variant of the chip
     must be used with the wss(4) driver.  The neo driver will not attach to such chips.

     ac97(4), audio(4), intro(4), midi(4), pci(4), wss(4)

     The neo device driver appeared in NetBSD 1.5.1.

     The MagicMedia 256 series is not well-documented.

     No MIDI or FM synthesizer capability is provided with the MagicMedia 256 in AC'97 mode.
     While those capabilities are provided by the Windows driver for the chip, they are emulated
     by the Windows driver, and not directly supported by the hardware.
