Token Ring (really)

I used to use the Token Ring driver in previous versions of FreeBSD (I think
it was the oli one I was using). I know that Token Ring support was removed
several releases ago. I again now have a somewhat pressing need for Token
Ring support on FreeBSD 9. The FreeBSD Token Ring Project seems to be
inactive from a look at the website.


Would anyone know of a PCI token ring card that perhaps the manufacturer
provides their own drivers for FreeBSD 9? All my google searches have come
up dry. Or, if any of the FreeBSD Token Ring Driver Project developers are
lurking around still, perhaps one of them would consider taking a donation
to make the old FreeBSD olicom drivers work on FreeBSD 9?
