I'll try that, although it's a bit of a nuisance, since I need a
-current "config" as well, to build the kernel. I'll install an

I'll try that, too, but as I said in the PR, the 4.2.0 driver works
fine under Linux (in fact, I'm using it to type this email, since I
don't yet have X under NetBSD on this machine).
