No, it should be taken out the back, tarred feathered, shot, hung, drawn
and quartered, burned at the stake and then nuked from orbit just to make
I mean no disrespect for the hardware, but the driver makes the hair on the
back of my neck stand on end...

There is also if_lnc which has been newbusified. I wasn't planning on
removing the actual drivers that use the shims, just the infrastructure. If
nobody is bothered enough to update the drivers by the time of 6.0-R, then
they can probably be removed. The code lives on practically unchanged in
RELENG_4 and will still be in RELENG_5, so it'll be available for porting
at a moment's notice.
