It's not that easy, because the detach part is completely missing.
Actually this driver needs a lot of work to get even near the state
of being maintainable. It's one of the two drivers not supporting
ALTQ, because I didn't want to spend too much time following 20 different
similiar code pathes. It also does some _very_ nasty stuff with
preallocating interfaces to support the multiple chip versions, but
that can and should be improved. Anyone having such a card?
