  It took me a bit longer than expected, mainly because documentation
for that chip is close to zero, but eventually I got it up and running. 
A NetBSD-current (as of approximately an hour ago) version of the
Maestro-2E driver for NetBSD is available at:

  To install the driver, cd to "/sys" (or wherever you keep your kernel
sources), and untar the file there.  Then

  patch <files.pci.diff
  patch <pcidevs.diff
  cd dev/pci
  make -f Makefile.pcidevs

  Then cd to "/sys/arch/i386/conf" and add

  maestro* at pci? dev? function ?
  audio* at maestro?

  at the appropriate places in your kernel config file.  Configure and
compile your kernel the usual way, and voila!

  In case you have a slightly older -current and the compiler complains
about wrong parameters for pci_intr_map(), you can try

  instead (though "pcidevs.diff" is missing there, just take the file
from the 20010107 version).  This version is also recommended if you
want to try this on NetBSD-1.5.x (-release).

  I have tested the driver on my Dell Inspiron 5000e, feedback from
other systems, comments, and suggestions are very much appreciated!  If
nobody objects, I intend to commit the driver in the next days.
