For i386 NetBSDers and others interested.
Since someone (Stefan firstname.lastname@example.org) was brave enough to take on the
PCI version of this driver, I've decided to take a hack at the isa port of
it. I have a VLB 2842 board but no EISA system. Someone else will have to test
that end of it. Stefan actually ported the PCI (2940) driver to both NetBSD-1.0
and -current. I will attempt to do the same. I'm presently running NetBSD-1.0
on both machines here at home.
What I need to know is what were the general philosophical changes in driver
configuration from NetBSD-1.0 to -current. I seem to recall that -current
wants to do a more thorough job of finding where the card lives (port addr)
and what IRQ and DMA channel it on. Am I getting warm?
