Today, I have updated my source tree and I found the following RCS
/*	$NetBSD: ncr_reg.h,v 1.4 1994/12/28 19:44:31 mycroft Exp */
/*	$NetBSD: ncrstat.c,v 1.6 1995/01/27 05:44:31 cgd Exp $	*/
/*	$NetBSD: ncr.c,v 1.12 1995/02/01 09:32:45 mycroft Exp $	*/

Could someone tell me whether these codes include any fixes mentioned
by Wayne?  If not, would someone send me the latest code for ncr?  I
can't test them now because I don't have any PCs with PCI bus.  But
I'm going to buy one, so I'd like to use the latest driver to
avoid getting troubles.

Any form, full source files or patches (for 1.0 or -current), would
be appreciated.
