I don't know. I have heard that 6110 doesn't speak proper IrDA, but that
6150 does. I would have to try to find out.
If 6150 _does_ speak full IrDA, are all the required docs available in
the net or is there still something unknown that prevents writing support
for 6150 in NetBSD?

That would help.. But when I checked some IrDA docs years ago, it seemed
like a lot of work to do (that's why I didn't want to implement full IrDA
in the application I wrote).
