I've got a laptop (Gateway Solo, fully loaded :-) that has a "Fast
EtherLink XL CardBus PC Card", or more exactly, a "3COM 3C575-TX"

However, this card doesn't seem to be supported under NetBSD.  I was
planning on taking this machine with me over the XMas break, but without
a network, it's rather difficult to get it installed...

I went digging into a Linux kernel and found support for it in their
3C59X driver (drivers/net/3c59x.c).  But unfortunately, I lack the knowledge
that it would require to fold support into -current. <sigh>

Anyone know how to get this card supported by -current?  Please.  I'm
leaving next Tuesday and would *really* like to take the laptop with me.

I've got a -current i386 machine that I can use to compile custom kernels,
so if anyone has patches, I'll *gladly* test them out.
