Drivers don't get "ported" to current, they just sort of float along
with the waves of changes.
As you know, at one point I did a bit of hacking on the Cyclades
driver in -current, to keep it moving forward with changes that wree
happening in the system at the time. Unfortunately, you, the only
person I was aware of with a board, were unable to test them, because
you were using your board in a production system (if i recall
There now appears to be somebody else with a board. If that person
will send me detailed information about what's going on (e.g. dmesg
