Don't know for sure about Adaptec, but wanXL firmware fits every
definition of "stable". BTW it's a 1997 or so early PCI card, built
around the PLX PCI9060 bus mastering PCI bridge and Motorola 68360
(the original QUICC) processor. Maximum bit rate of 2 Mb/s on each sync
serial port.

It's more about delivering the .S source for the firmware, I guess.
Nobody is expected to build it. The fw is about 2.5 KB and is directly
linked with the driver.
