I tried to compile it on 5-STABLE, but the top-level Makefile bombs out
with a lot of declaration and structure errors.

The card itself is a Sweex LC500050, which might not work on PCIBIOS 2.1
motherboards according to ral(4) (mine is old enough to be one of
these).  Maybe this helps the panic?

I captured a panic (hand-written), after a "ndis0 up" message from the
kernel, with inet address still :

fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode
fault virtual address = 0xdeadc0de
fault code = supervisor read, page not present
instruction pointer = 0x8:0xdeadc0de
stack pointer = 0x10:0xca3f7c40
frame pointer = 0x10:0xca3f7ca4
code segment = base 0x0, limit 0xfffff, type 0x1b
	DPL 0, pres 1, def32 1, gran 1
eflags = interrupt enabled, resume, IOPL=0
current proc = 32 (ndis swi)
tid = 100031

show pciregs gives:
ndis0 at pci4:0:0
class 0x28000
card 0x25601814
chip 0x02011814
rev 0x01
hdr 0x00
