I noticed that it appears that the set of PCI devices supported by
if_de.c is a strict subset of those supported by if_tlp_pci.c.  The only
device not supported by if_tlp_pci.c is the DEC4250 EISA controller.

It seems like it might be a good idea to remove the PCI-isms from
if_de.c, and move it into the dev/eisa subdirectory.  (Is there anyone
who actually has a DEC4250 controller who can test this config?)

A better idea might be to generalize if_tlp_pci.c so it can support
alternate busses (the AN985 is also available in cardbus, for example --
I actually have one of those cardbus cards), and then create a
