    initial v1  
    11The dependence of NIC on DDF hampers its genericity. It prevents:
    22 - multiport adapters (unless special support is added in NIC framework)
    3  - mixed-type deviced
     3 - mixed-type devices
    44 - non-DDF NICs (e.g. loopback)
    55and besides it goes against the principle that services provided by a driver (and thus frameworks built to facilitate implementing those) should be independent of the driver implementation (including, but not limited to, wheter its DDF or non-DDF).
