Yes. This bus is "optimized for DRAM timing", which could potentially include
memory-mapped framebuffers.

The pinout of the bus was at least the same enough for memory boards to
interoperate between sun3, sun3x, and SPARC VME CPUs.

If it matters, I am specifically interested in its use on sun2. But I'll take
anything. I have a sun2 memory board that I want a clearer understanding of,
in order to troubleshoot its failure mode more effectively.
