You're not seriously suggesting this as a solution for the driver, do
you? What if someone cleared the buffer, or the message got dropped out
of the buffer due to iptables filling your logs? Should we then parse
/var/log/dmesg?  And /var/log/messages on other distibutions?
Furthermore we want to do that in a OS independent way anyway since
NetBSD has some support for IP22 too.

look for NewportModeInit in the newport driver (newport_driver.c). I
have a patch here to fix this properly already, just need to wait for
the compile to finish and to test it.
