The "lmc" driver should be the one you want, but it may be that the
driver doesn't support the newer cards... Hm, tho it does claim to
support "LMC1200 T1/E1 WAN adapter" in the manual page.

Look in dev/pci/if_lmc_nbsd.c -- in lmc_pci_probe(), at the top before
it does anything, add the following line:

	pci_conf_print(pa->pa_pc, pa->pa_tag, NULL);

...and you might want to make the message buffer larger in your kernel.
Anyway, then e-mail the output.
