Would you be interested to port it from FreeBSD? My plate is kinda
full at the moment. Please feel free to ask questions on kernel@ or

BTW, is anyone interested to port age(4)? I got a private mail from
one of the possible users about it :)
These two chips seem more and more common these days. However, I
don't have any (they should be LOM).
