I'm sorry to come back to this.
I cannot find a list of cards supported by the b44 driver, or which version
supports which card, but looking through the code in kernel version,
guessing from line 107, I would say that this card would be supported.

I don't know if netdde loops through the drivers in alphabetical order, but
looking at the output of
settrans -fga /dev/netdde /hurd/netdde
that would be my guess. And what I see is that after testing atheros drivers, the
e100 intel driver is tested next. Is the b44 driver being skipped?

You mentioned the move to Rump drivers on a different message. This is
interesting. I could only find some old documentation about this:
Is there more recent information or a roadmap?
