Yeah, pretty much the same as the an983b chipset.
These are most likely included in the tulip driver which is not pretty by
any means.  While the ADMTek an985 and an983b have similarities with the
tulip design (Intel/DEC 2114x), there are enough differences that IMHO it
should be a separate driver.  "Easy to port" is subjective, especially
considering the ability to find time to work on it. At least information is
readily available on the chipsets.
