I have a port of OpenBSD's bnx(4) (which is a port of FreeBSD's bce(4)).
It needs more testing (it worked fine on i386, but it had an unexplained
issue on amd64; I don't have the hardware myself so debugging was hard
and my tester kind of disappeared), and a final bit of polishing.
I'll make sure it compiles in -current and send it to you if you want.
