Don't worry -- it's not going to work on NetBSD, at least until someone
hacks it a bit.
The Linux guys at Redhat wrote a Sbus layer for Linux, similar to the
PCI layer that has been implemented for *BSD, Linux and Solaris.
If one were to port the Sbus bus layer in the Xfree86 tree, then they
might be able to use this driver in the new and improved XF86 way
of doing things. Until such time, it will not work.
