iee(4) is not MD. The MI core livess in src/sys/dev/ic/i82596*.
Currently there is only one MD attachment for iee(4) in
src/sys/arch/hp700/gsc/if_iee_gsc.c. I plan to add a MD attachment for
mvme68k at some time. (AFAIK mvme68k has a i82596 and drives it in
i82586 compatibility mode.)

ie(4) is not MD too. It was used by hp700 (before I wrote iee(4)) and
is still used by at least sun3, sparc, mvme68k and a bunch of drivers
for ISA cards.
