  Add a driver for Alteon Gigabit Ethernet cards.

share/man/man4/ti.4                             1.1 (new)
share/man/man4/Makefile                         1.129 via patch

  Add manual page for Alteon Gigabit driver.


sys/dev/pci/if_ti.c                             1.6-1.7 via patch

  Fix bug which could result in a panic.  Add a shutdown hook to
  stop the board to avoid memory corruption on reboot.  Use bus_space
  for TIGON 2 chips, so that they will work even if we can't map
  the memory space linearly (e.g. on alpha).

So, it would seem that the answer may be "maybe not" for plain
1.4.2 on an Alpha; you could try to update along the netbsd-1-4
branch as shown above, though if you want to run code as close as
possible to a release.
