I made an another patch not to break the backward compatibility of
This version is tested just on MIPS cross-compilation due to lack of H/W
but I expect that the patch doesn't touch any original siba(4) logics.
By design reasons I made a siba_bwn bridge module whose parent device is

I believe that with this patch I solved a objection until now so If no
more objections by end of this week, I'll commit it into HEAD.
