I am new to netbsd and have some questions for the network gurus.
How come there is no support for IEEE802.3 in netbsd. I was looking at
the if_ethersubr.c code. We already have support for 802.2 LLC (used for
NETATALK, ISO..). I was thinking it should  be quite easy to add the
802.3 MAC encapsulation.

1. Am I missing something ?
2. Can Ethernet(V2) and 802.3 coexist on the same subnet ?
3. Does any body know approximate % of V2  vs  802.3 users "out there" ?
