Some info can be found http://www.chip.tomsk.ru/chip/chipdoc.nsf/0/7cc6ef8237a7d5a9c7256b5600696274?OpenDocument
Basically the hint bridge is used to control and sync up to 4 PCI devices.
I have the old info sheet from Hint Corp. printed out at home, I can post it this evening...

i think because the chips (=VSA100) use a master/slave configuration. so one chip (primary) is the master, and connected with the agp bus. the second is slave, and only connected to the first chip. this also explains why a agp bridge is needed, since else the v5 6k would have two master chips on 1 agp bus.
anyone correct me if im wrong here... :)
