I've recently (in the past week) integrated a small improvement from Roland ( so kernel code can use C99 booleans (supposedly there are performance gains for using this relative to boolean_t), and a major overhaul and conversion to GLDv3 for the legacy "dnet" driver from Steve Stallion.

I would like to thank both contributors for their patience. Neither of these was a particularly trivial integration. Steve in particular worked on this integration for quite a long time, due largely to the high cost of getting such a crufty driver to pass through NICDRV.
