Rules for adding new network drivers?
Are there any particular rules when deciding if a new network driver
should be added to NetBSD? Specifically, I'm wondering about the
et driver (Agere ET1310/ET1301) originally written by Sepherosa Ziehau
for DragonFly  and ported to OpenBSD by Jonathan Gray .
Would this driver be considered for inclusion even when its current
vendor (LSI) now dubs it as a "legacy product"? 
I'm asking because I've actually ported it to NetBSD, since I recently
bought a board with this chip. Does it make sense to submit a patch
(needs some finishing touches), or is that just a waste of effort?
[Don't get me wrong: I'm willing to do the work, but I'd like to know
what the chances are that it gets accepted/included.]
Thanks for any guidance.
