[20060126] nVidia nForce ethernet support
NVidia is not exactly known for opening up specifications for their hardware, and besides their graphics cards, buyers of their network cards or mainboards with those cards onboard have a problem. Support for NVidia's nForce ethernet controllers as e.g. found in some "Shuttle" computers was a problem for a long time, but it seems progress is finally there via the pkgsrc/sysutils/nvnet package. It's still only available as external driver via a LKM, but at least that's better than nothing. A success report with dmesg output is also available.

Of course having full specs to write a proper driver would be ways preferred over this.
