Well, at least the VSA2 implementation is open source. :)
Problem is that the VSA2 modules aren't distributed in source form,
anywhere. They are however distributed under some royalty-free license in
binary form, which will do just fine for most users wanting the
functionality. Compare with 3Com 3CR990 with specially licensed binary
image (firmware for 3com chip) inside driver..
