interesting - at first glance I didn't think I wanted this, but after
looking at the man page, yes I do ... 

it's not in the GENERIC kernel, but the ALL config lists about 8
different variants of DRM - I think this has an Intel video chipset (the
0x8086 PCI manufacturer id is pretty distinctive) but I'm not sure which
model it is ...

interesting ... can NetBSD make use of this at all?  That could be nice
to have ...

yeah - lii is in the GENERIC kernel however:

$NetBSD: if_lii.c,v 1.5 2008/07/08 12:39:27 sborrill Exp $

I'm aware that most devices these days have manufacturer and model
numbers to allow correct driver binding, but I'm not sure where these
are maintained inside the NetBSD sources - I'm tempted to simply add
them to the lii and Intel i810 drivers and see what happens but haven't
a clue as to where to do this ...
