I had a quick look at the DP83815/DP83816 datasheets and they look
like fairly simple devices- about like the dec21140 order of
complexity.  LOTS simpler than the 3com in any event.  It should be
possible to adapt the dec driver, though it presupposes a PCI
interface which might taking a bit of fiddling to work around.

I'd be willing to do it, but I don't have a device and am sort of
swamped right now- but if you want to give it a try I'd be happy to
