I’ve been associated with two different Linux kernel drivers over the years.
The driver for the 3Com 3c505 ethernet card was started by me in 1996, and was completed by Andrew Tridgell (fellow Australian of Samba fame). This code last appeared in kernel version 2.4.37.
I was also part of the team that worked on the IxJ driver for the QuickNet telephony card in 1999. That code also disappeared after kernel version 2.4.37.
