I have rl, fxp, xl, dc, bge (which I have an uncommitted patch for), nfe, and sk. Not all are scheduled for removal but this is my inventory for which I can test and am willing to help out with. Add iwn and ath too.

Apologies for any typos and autocorrect.
Also, this old phone only supports top post. Apologies.

The need of the many outweighs the greed of the few.

I can probably do this for bfe and fxp, since I have both.
Can someone suggest a good example driver that has already been converted,
so I can see what needs to be done?

Again, I don't care if they stay in the current/head tree.
