As far as I understand, the interrupt issue is specific to A1222/Tabor (but not necessarily to any Ethernet driver for A1222/Tabor), whereas the MAC address issue is specific to X5000/Cyrus. And none of these issues is specific to any of Costel's drivers, which are abandoned anyway.
Bingo, unrelated issues, Costel is irrelevant, all just likely to stir up OS4 fanatics like a hornet's nest.
So, that quote starts starts with "sorry".
And what doesn't get enough attention is that another piece of software started under MorphOS is released for use by the OS4 base.
