Just FYI, I've once used DEFTA (PDQ PMAF-FA) FDDI turbo channel card
with DEC 3000 model 300 (21064 alpha machine).  I tried severe network
traffic over FDDI, and NetBSD/Alpha snapshot could drive it
flawlessly.  I had no chance for DEFTA with MIPS machines, though.  At
least one implementation can work with NetBSD.
