I've been working a bit on our current sk(4) driver, and I'd be
interested in doing the Yukon 2 pieces (up to and including splitting it
into a new driver, if necessary), but I'm crippled by an acute lack of
hardware at the moment.  If someone could either send me a card or point
me at an inexpensive (< $US100, please) example, I'd be happy to take a
crack at it...

(now, if I could just get someone to review the changes to sk(4) I
posted to tech-net a few days ago... ;)
