No, it's not in the generic kernel, and it won't be in the 1.0-release
(unless the release is greatly delayed and new device support is added -
which I think is extremely unlikely).
This is another (stupid) board that uses the level 6 interrupt, which
is somewhat hard to deal with in NetBSD. I have gotten it to run fairly
well most of the time, but the system still locks up occasionally when
I'm using one of the MFC-III ports. I haven't been able to figure out
where the system is hanging yet.
