This may have been overlooked, but recently (5 May 2008) PCIVERBOSE
was turned off in (among others) the i386 GENERIC kernel.  This causes
you to no longer get the text strings for the devices, but rather just
the IDs.

BTW, I see on the wiki that this "not configured" has been
interpreted as "video card not recognized by the kernel, so
there's no point in trying Xorg".  That is in fact wrong; the X
server does it's own video card probing and detection, and does
not depend (much) on actual NetBSD kernel support.  The exception
to that rule is probably dri/drm(?)

Actually...  The Attansic L1 Ethernet is quite different from the
Attansic L2 Ethernet, contrary to what the name indicates.  It is
therefore unlikely that the lii driver will ever handle this device.

FreeBSD has driver support for the L1 device in their age(4) driver,
so there appears to be a starting point for porting a driver from
that.  I'm not aware of anyone actively working on it (though I'm not

I don't know how far off a driver (update?) for this one is, sorry.
It may depend on a general update of the 802.11 code to handle "N"
