Err, uh, as far as I can tell i've _never_ hacked on that driver, or
even committed anything to it.  (i.e. not even pullup requests for
release branches!)

The only recent ("within the last year") changes to that driver I see

revision 1.22
date: 1999/05/18 23:52:52;  author: thorpej;  state: Exp;  lines: +3 -8
Rework layer 2 protocol input routines.  Instead of calling e.g. ether_input()
directly, call the function pointer (*if_input)(ifp, m).  The input routine
expects the packet header to be at the head of the packet, and will adjust
as necessary.  Privatize the layer 2 input and output routines, allowing
*_ifattach() to set them up as appropriate.
revision 1.21
date: 1999/03/25 23:11:52;  author: thorpej;  state: Exp;  lines: +3 -7
branches:  1.21.4;
Use ETHER_*_LEN constants from <net/if_ether.h> instead of defining them

Is one of those the change you mean?
