     Linux, it was ported to OpenBSD and NetBSD by Jaromir Dolecek
     <jdolecek@NetBSD.org> for Moritz Systems Technology Company Sp. z o.o.

     Network initialization requires a Python script published in the Linux
     driver repository, available as package pkgsrc/net/py-xmm7360.  The
     script requires the management device nodes to be created via:

           cd /dev && ./MAKEDEV xmm0
