I don't know particularly why this driver would be broken.  It is
nothing intentional.  This is the diff of the head versus the 4.6 version:

$ diff ne2000.c

< #include <errno.h>

There have been some general warning cleanup and BSD .h file
updates but I don't know of anything focused on this BSP.

I hate to be picky but what does "everything" include. :)
