No. I have pretty much assumed that there is no interest in having this
work. The modules are broken to the point where either the author or
someone who has documentation on how they should work will have to fix
them. Clearly the policy of "if you want your change in the kernel you
have to fix what it breaks" is dead.

I posted that to the list, if it didn't make it for any reason I can't
easily recreate it, the machine has been converted to BSD, the 2.5 work is
on a removable drive which is removed, since we can't make any progress
with it for the moment.

It was the old tulip driver which had the problem, de21{something}x.c as I
recall. Without a doc on what causes that I gave up trying to fix it by
comparing to other modules.

Thanks for asking.
