Right.  This is the only part that really needs work.

The bsd-3-0-0-branch is no longer necessary, it's been brought to the mainline.

The stuff in there is also incomplete(as far as NetBSD is concerned).  One part
(DRM(ioremap)) that I sent a patch in didn't get committed because it was kind
of yucky, which I wasn't too surprised about. :)

I have seen my g450 "work", but it's not complete, and I haven't looked
at any of the other drivers yet.

I've cleaned up the DRM(ioremap) bits, but I've still got more work to do
to make it work properly on NetBSD.
