The same document that explains how to write IA32 drivers :-)

Seriously, all of the kernel interfaces you should need should
be the same between IA32 and IA64.  It's amazing how many IA64
drivers were created by just re-compiling the IA32 versiion with
no source code changes.

I would recommend starting with the book `Linux Device Drivers'
by Rubini.  It's kind of out of date (written for the 2.0 kernel)
but it gives you a good idea about the basics.
