First step is to remove all of the locks.  You could process interrupt
direct in the intr function; there is no need to create driver
specific taskqueue.  IFF_DRV_YYYY -> IFF_YYYY.  Our mbuf functions
take MB_YYYY.  Some M_NOWAIT need to be changed to M_WAITOK

IIRC, our install CD will not populate /usr/src
