No the Sonic driver is not working on your Quadra 840.  As the 840 is an
AV Mac it uses the Mace driver for the onboard Ethernet not the Sonic
driver.  I'm sure if you check dmesg output you will see the Mace driver
initializing not the Sonic driver.

I've been spending my time trying to port the NuBus PPC code to 2.6.
When I have this completed it should result in working Ethernet drivers.
And then perhaps I'll have some time to attempt to fix any other m68k
Mac issues.
