It looks like that with the import of the new qemu code the support for
ne2000 emulation was dropped.
This is a bit unfortunate since it leave OpenBSD/i386 as a VMX guest
with a working nic (the realtek one does not seem to work in at least
3.9 - while it is recognized it will not get a MAC-address and any
attempt to use it will result in a watchdog timeout logged in the guest).
Is there any fundamental reason why ne2k got dropped or is there a
chance to resurrect it ?
