It does, but it's very small and only contains the extended expansion card 
ID, the Ethernet address and a few other bits.  In particular, it doesn't 
have a chunk directory, so there's no podule description (for *Podules) or 
driver module.

That should be enough for NetBSD's ei(4) to at least attach to it.  I'm 
not sure there's much I can do to help without reviving my building and 
testing infrastructure here, which isn't going to happen for at least a 
week or two.
