With the wait-states you refer to here, this would be why the G-Rex4000 would DMA into the Ram of the CSPPC or CSMKIII on it's backplane to CPU card connector & of course, give it a serious blistering speed.
From this & your explanation of the PIO transfer through the X-Surf100, how does it compare for speed/throughput with a G-Rex4000 setup using a Realtek based PCI NIC?
