I've just committed some changes to the ep driver.  They're not terribly 
extensive ... really, all I did was break up the driver into isa, eisa, 
and pci font-ends, coupled to a core bus-independent back-end.  The code 
is exactly the same, just more modular.  This uses the new cfattach 
autoconfiguration stuff.

Of particular interest: All those folks who have Genuine EISA 3c579 or 
equivalents, or those wacky 3c509s that masquerade as EISA cards, you'll 
need to add the following to your kernel config file:

ep*     at eisa? slot ?                         # 3C579 ethernet cards


If you encounter ANY problems, please let me know ASAP!

Thanks :-)
