I had such a board at my hands for half a day - enough to add the device IDs
ti pcidevs, no long enough to play with the NIC. at this time there was no
support for the chip in any other BSD nor linux either. I dunno wether that
has changed. well, without hardware, no development.

Unix is very simple, but it takes a genius to understand the simplicity.
