 Do Linux support VME Bus
I building a embedded system using Linux, while going through the source, i
discover there isn't any driver to support Vme Bus. Can Linux O/S support
Vme Bus protoccol?

 Do Linux support VME Bus

There is little special in VME. It is handle ad-hoc by ports,
e.g. sun4 subarch of sparc is VME, works like a charm (almost :).
What did you expect to find, vme_virt_to_phys() or what?

Of course it can.

For systems based on the Tundra  Universe  PCI-VME  bridge  there  is
VMELinux, see

For a couple of boars based on MOC860, MPC8260 and MPC8240 CPUs there
is VME support in our Linux kernel tree; see
