     kue -- Kawasaki LSI KL5KUSB101B USB Ethernet device

     kue* at uhub?

     The kue driver provides support for USB Ethernet adapters based on the
     Kawasaki LSI KL5KLUSB101B chipset.  This includes the following adapters:

     The KL5KLUSB101B supports a 128-entry multicast filter, single perfect
     filter entry for the station address and promiscuous mode.  Packets are
     received and transmitted over separate USB bulk transfer endpoints.

     The Kawasaki adapter supports only 10Mbps half-duplex mode, hence there
     are no ifmedia(4) modes to select.

     For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).

     The driver needs a firmware file, which is loaded on demand when the
     device is attached:


     kue0: watchdog timeout  A packet was queued for transmission and a trans-
     mit command was issued, however the device failed to acknowledge the
     transmission before a timeout expired.

     kue0: no memory for rx list  The driver failed to allocate an mbuf for
     the receiver ring.

     The kue device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 4.0.  OpenBSD support was
     added in OpenBSD 2.7.

     The kue driver was written by Bill Paul <wpaul@ee.columbia.edu> and
     ported to OpenBSD by Aaron Campbell <aaron@openbsd.org>.

     The kue driver does not accumulate Ethernet collisions statistics because
     the Kawasaki firmware does not appear to maintain any internal statis-
