RTEMS ethernet stack and drvmgr

Hello everyone,

Since I just read the question from Fernando, I was wondering if the (recommended) Ethernet stack of rtems-libbsd does work with the greth driver of the drvmgr as well?
The greth driver, as most of the other Ethernet drivers of other BSPs,  calls the ether_ifattach function at some point.
In the current sources of FreeBSD the prototype of this function seems to be different.
Do I understand it correctly that all drivers doing that are only compatible to the network stack included with "-enable-networking"?

Best regards,
