Are you sure this card is supported by NetBSD? Which module do
you use on Linux?

It happens to be a good choice for embedded systems ;-). This way,
you have all drivers in a single compressed image stored in flash, thus
you don't waste space on / filesystem (which may happen to be mfs).
LKMs would make sense if you have relatively large storage (such as CF)
which may or may not be the case on your embedded platform.
