That's one point, but maybe not the whole truth.

Yes, I noticed the above commit message causing the UPDATING
comment.  That's when I tried (once more) a "D-Link DFE650TX"
card in both an Compaq Armada and a Toshiba Sattelite, both with
-CURRENT snapshot boot floppies and complete 4.2-STABLE systems
(and updated pccard.conf files).  Up to now with no success.

Triggered by a recent list article I will do another test later
this week with the fa_select(8?) utility mentioned at
www.freebsddiary.org/last-netgear.html and see if it will work
this time.
