Hi guys.

Last I checked (a few months ago) NetBSD did not support ethernet
devices on IXP425 XScale based boards. Did that change?
In order to get the built-in ethernet ports to work with Linux, one
needs to build and a load a so-called access library from Intel, the
kernel driver and firmware which are about 1MB. Talk about bloat...
