I submitted a patch for NE2000 support on PXA/PCMCIA, really don't know
why it didn't go into the trunk. Anyway take a look:


I've tested it with a couple of different NE2000 cards (Belkin, Pretec),
I would like to hear any more feedbacks. Please note that 802.11b are
much worse beasts and they come with licensing problems too since
usually you have to download some firmware and such.
