Yes, I know that. I had briefly put it back, but I've since changed
it. What I committed now stores the handle/tag in the softc, and pass
a pointer to these to the HAL. It works on SPARC, i386, and the
AR5312. I have not been able to make the HAL work on Au1550 (MIPS
based) for some time, but at this point I don't know whether the problem
is in the HAL or in the Au1550 port. I'd love to have someone else with
alternate MIPS hardware test this out for me.
