I've adapted Stefan's AHA-2942 (PCI) driver to 2842 (VL) on NetBSD-current
(it is very easy work :-)), and now I am using it. According to FreeBSD 
driver's source, 2842's driver seems to work on 2742 (EISA), too.

But, there is still minor problems. One of the problem is that config
file requires
	pci0    at root
in spite of VL system.
The same problem seems to be exist on NetBSD-current/src/sys/dev/isa/if_le.c,
because if_le.c has following line
	#include "pci.h"
to refer symbol `NPCI'. (My source tree is a bit out-of-dated, so I don't
actually confirmed it, yet.)

What is the *right* solution of this problem ?
