Subject: updated vmicvme driver 
I commited the latest VMIC VME driver we use at TRIUMF. It has working support
for D32 and D64 DMA and can move data from the SIS3820 multiscaler through the
MIDAS frontend at > 30 Mbytes/sec on our VMICVME-7805 machines. The actual DMA
speed on the VME bus is around 50 Mbytes/sec, effective data rate is lower
because of a memcpy() from the kernel DMA buffer into user memory (required by
the MIDAS mvmestd.h interface, quite inefficient for DMA operations). K.O.
