For the archives, I was able to get the card working with the latest
version of the driver from the SVN tree!
For the hardware, I used
with RELENG_7 and nanobsd. The board has dual SIM slots, but there
are no drivers to switch between the two, so just the top one works.
When I bought the mini-pciexpress card (or PCI Express Mini Card), it
was listed as a MC8775, where as ati3 shows a Sierra MC8781. I
bought it on ebay from the US and it works fine using my Roger's
blackbery SIM here in Ontario, Canada.
