I'd like to see it in NetBSD too, it blows the pants off of the Julian
Elischer derived code.

It also uses FreeBSD's busdma stuff, which isn't too entirely different
from NetBSD's so it shouldn't be too hard to port. I'd even be willing
to do a chunk of the work myself, now that I finally understand a good
portion of the CAM code (and I have this AlphaStation 600 with nothing
to do...).
