My non-kernel-hacker friend has a new HomePNA card which is not detected
correctly (or it looks like the PHY is not detected) in NetBSD/i386 1.5ZC:

Advanced Micro Devices PCnet-Home HomePNA Ethernet (ethernet network, revision 0x52) at pci0 dev 12 function 0 not configured

Is it enought to define line in miidevs with 0x000c (is "dev 12" the
ID of this missing PHY?) as the ID, regenerate miidevs.h and add the
new entry to pnaphy.c?

I want to make this work and add support for the new card in -current
before 1.6 is branched...
