That shouldn't be necessary. I used the Linux source as (one of the
pieces of) documentation while writing my LiveWire/MACE ethernet driver.
The Linux PCMCIA support (and kernel in general) is structured
sufficiently differently from the NetBSD one that I could not copy any
of the code even if I had wanted to. I don't see any similarities
between the goals of the NetBSD Foundation and Sun, so it is quite
likely that the OSes will not come close to being kernel source
