Description
This package is a collection of tools useful for hardware troubleshooting and optimization (for ix86 machines):

irqtune: adjusts priority of interrupts (improves serial performance),
scanport: scans for hardware not already handled by Linux drivers,
memmxtest: a real mode memory test, with MMX support. You may want
to look at package memtest86 as well.
qic-02 driver and configuration utilities. Adds the qic-02 tapes support

Be aware that these tools require some knowledge of what are they doing to be used properly, otherwise they may cause damage to your system.
