I have a card using the ral driver, but it has been far from stable.
I've experienced various problems the last few releases, and after
upgrading to 6.2-PRERELEASE, any attempt to run ifconfig on this
card gives a kernel panic. I've not done any serious attempts at
troubleshooting this since I don't really need the card. I believe
the card was branded Bay Networks something something, I could check
that up if anyone wants to know.
