Apparently not (certainly not by me) - the driver has been committed
to FreeBSD tree with commit message containing:

The vge driver has been added to GENERIC for i386, pc98 and amd64,
but not to sparc or ia64 since I don't have the ability to test
it there.

Assuming eaddr is stored in network byte order and the returned
value being in network byte order too, the code might actually
be just fine as-is. If you had a chance to try this on big-endian
machine, let me know :)
