I don't think there is any support in the tree, however I wrote a minimal CDC
Ethernet driver a while back in order to talk to my Zaurus. Been meaning to
throw it up on a web page or something but I just keep getting too busy :-/
It's pretty bare-bones -- doesn't implement some of the features that a "real"
CDC NIC would (multicast, etc.), but is enough to talk to simple devices like
the Zaurus. I've never tested it on anything else -- I suspect it wouldn't
be too hard to adapt though. If you're interested in looking at it I'll send
you a copy or post it somewhere.
