I can recommend MAGMA products ( http://www.magma.com/ ) -
I use an LC 2+1 Sp ( http://www.magma.com/sbus/sbus_lc2+1sp.html ) with
NetBSD has drivers but I am currently using it with SunOS 4.
NetBSD 1.4/1.5 handle a 56k on built-in serial ports without problems in
my experience on SS1/SS1+ with ipf & ipnat (at full throughput,
interrupt load seems to be 30-50% according to systat but no evidence of
overruns, unlike SunOS 4).
