Actually what I should have said was that de(4) is a mess, period. The
code in de(4) deviates significantly from style(9). There's a lot of
spaghetti in there for those who care to look.
In my opinion, expecting committers to maintain it is unrealistic, unless
they're familiar with the site local style in the driver files, or willing
to become familiar.
To the best of my knowledge, NetBSD's tlp(4) driver supports all of the
target hardware that de(4) does, and is much closer to our coding style.
This was my recommendation in private to various developers back in July
shortly before I moved to Berkeley.
