I've briefly looked at the FreeBSD wd drivers, and into integrating them into
the NetBSD source.  Franky, I'm not seeing any advantage in it.  It's seeming 
more like slightly reworked 386BSD drivers, and they seem to have an entirely
different view of the disk array than the NetBSD drivers do.  I'd bank on trying
to find the bugs in our own drivers, I am of the opinion that they are the best
ones out there.  (Not that I'm qualified to make that claim *grin*)
