Brussels ndd compatibility changes are in Nevada 90

More good news- the fixes for 

 
 PSARC/2008/171 Brussels: NDD compatiblity support

and

PSARC/2008/175 Brussels framework enhancements to get/set defaults

have been put back into snv_90. With these changes, ethernet  drivers which have used ndd(1m) to configure MII parameters no longer have to provide code to hande ND_SET and ND_GET ioctls  - the GLDv3 layer will automatically translate the ndd ioctls into equivalent setprop/getprop commands and invoke the drivers registered entry points.

 For design details, check out the nddcompat design doc   at the OpenSolaris Brussels project page.

We've also put out a White Paper summarizing what features are available through Brussels, and when/how one would use them.  Hope you find the information useful!

Coming soon: Brussels Persistence, so that you can just tune once, and have the setting available for the next restart.
