Just so we don't lose track of the discussion some of us had in another
forum, I'm noting here the following work from OpenBSD:

1) The arc(4) driver for Areca RAID cards

2) The bnx(4) driver for Broadcom NetXtreme II cards (minus TSO and TOE
   support -- does OpenBSD support TSO at all?)  We should talk to this
   driver's author, who works for Broadcom, and see if we can get him
   to maintain it in NetBSD as well.

3) Changes to the sk(4) driver to support the Yukon II DMA descriptor
   format (though not checksum offload or TSO).  These should allow a
   minimally functional driver with newer Yukon variants.
