I now have a working DEC EtherWORKS III driver for NetBSD. It uses the
bus_* stuff and should be MI. I've only created an ISA attachment for
now. (I'll do the EISA one in a day or two). It seems to run fine under
NetBSD/i386 1.2D. It should work under NetBSD/alpha (that's the point
of MI drivers). However, my NetBSD/alpha machine only has a TurboChannel
so I can't test it.
The driver is at http://www.3am-software.com/lc-970612.tar.gz and should
be untarred into your src tree. lc.diffs contains a patch for
sys/conf/files and sys/dev/isa/files.isa. It also has a sample
config line at the front.
The card/driver is not that speedy (5Mb/s in PIO mode, 7Mb/s in shared
memory mode) but then the EWRKS III has never been that fast. The driver
supports multicast (of course) and bpfilter (of course).
Give it a shot and let me know the results...
