Found it: it is the Proteon driver on BBN tape 2. The file has the following comment at the top:
* Proteon VII Local Net Interface Driver
* (adapted from Noel Chiappa's V6 driver and ACC driver by Rob Gurwitz, BBN)
* NB. Make sure definition of VII_CONF is correct for configuration of ring,
* i.e., VII_HEN for use with wire center, VII_STE for use without.
So yes, they indeed took one you wrote for the V6 machine and adapted it.
