It seems Steve Isaacs had the datasheet as well. No idea if he had to
sign a NDA.

Does anyone have good contacts at SMSC and can ask for a datasheet
without NDA? My experience is that if you say "We will use the datasheet
for the free tool XY, which makes it easier to develop hardware with
your product", then you often can get datsheets very fast and even
without formal NDA.
