We had found one at a previous job, IIRC it was originally from
OpenBSD. This looks very familiar:
but seems to be incomplete (compared to what we had). I didn't do the
import, so I couldn't say if there's a newer version somewhere or if
we had made local changes. I could also be confusing it with features
in the eCos driver.
