What about them? NetBSD doesn't support the Pi3. What drivers do
we want anyway?

It is unfeasible to use the Plan 9 toolchain for this. Not only is
the C dialect different, and the assembly dialect completely
different, but the code expects a certain calling convention provided
by gcc and different from the Plan 9 calling convention.

Doing a rump port with gcc, cross-compiling on Unix and running on
Plan 9, should be easy though.
