    6 This is a project to port more FreeBSD NIC device drivers to RTEMS.  Till Straumann has developed the ''libbsd-port'' kit which is in the CVS module of the same name.  It is considered a prototype but a very good and working starting place.

    8 It would be very useful to have an semi-automated procedure to assist developers in porting individual drivers on an as needed basis than a large collection of untested drivers.  The [wiki:Projects/RosettaOSDeviceDriverAPI Rosetta OS Device Driver API] effort is a "non-Linux OS" working group which hopes to provide a common foundation set of APIs for device drivers.  By supporting this, any [wiki:Projects/RosettaOSDeviceDriverAPI Rosetta OS Device Driver API] compliant driver would just work.
     8In summary, this kit works and is a great aid to have more recent drivers for the OLD TCP/IP stack.  However, long term we want to work to add more drivers and architecture support to the new https://git.rtems.org/rtems-libbsd/ TCP/IP stack for RTEMS.
