I just got a pair of Davicom pci ethernet cards I'd like to be
able to use under
NetBSD 2.0 i386.

With dmesg I get the following line with reference the card:
 Davicom Semiconductor product 0x9009 (ethernet network,
 revision 0x31) at pci0 dev 20 function 0 not configure

I'm hoping this is compatible with the one of the Davicom drivers built in
and there might be a low pain way to trick the kernel into thinking this
card is one of them...

If so, could you suggest which files to hack? (I already have /usr/src/sys...)

After searching around I found the following line in /usr/src/sys/dev/pci/pcidevs:
pcidevs:product DAVICOM DM9102  0x9102  Davicom DM9102 10/100 Ethernet

Can I infer that the pci identifier of the new chip is 0x9009 and add a line like:
pcidevs:product DAVICOM DM9102AF 0x9009  Davicom DM9102AF 10/100 Ethernet

If so, then what?

Any help appreciated!
