bluefish cards are working on some machines - B180, Cxxx, for example,
but I'm not aware of anyone running one in a 725/100.  The linux driver requires
coherent memory to work (typically non-cached), and that feature isn't
provided across all PARISC CPU flavours.  In theory your 725/100 supports that
and so should work.  fwiw, the CPU in 735 doesn't support coherent memory, which
is why my attempt to add support for 53c720 on 735 (outfield) failed.
