If it doesn't exist in NetBSD, it can probably be reasonably done if
hardware and docs are available. I might be willing to do it if there
is sufficient interest and someone donates some hardware to me. Without
funding though, it will take a backseat to the projects that folks are
paying me for. :-) So I can't state a specific timeline.
