I'm not quite sure I understand what you mean by this.  Are you suggesting eliminating support for A24 DMA entirely in the BSP, or just for some quirk of the NI1014?  We use the Kinetic Systems 2917 VME/CAMAC adapter, which uses A24 DMA.  We definitely need to be able to continue to use these, there are a dozen or more in use on beamlines where they control a critical CAMAC device for multi-element fluorescence detectors.
