    I wasn't talking specifically about network cards. But if you want
    specific examples...

    How about the x86 or parisc cpu, and all their derivatives, are those
    complex enough for you? :-)

    I've worked on OpenGL capable grapics card drivers of various
    vintages, and I honestly don't think there is anything in there more
    complex than what we have to deal with in the kernel.
