Hi Bernhard,
that's not what I said: cc11xx is the only *radio* in master. Since netdev2
was introduced around the time we introduced Ethernet, there are also
several Ethernet devices (netdev2_tap, enc28j60, encx24j600) that support
the netdev2 interface. Our IEEE 802.15.4 radios work with the predecessor
of netdev2 that is very similar, but bound to the GNRC stack: gnrc_netdev.
PR 4646 and its dependencies introduce a glue code layer for netdev2 and
GNRC and allows thus for easy porting of gnrc_netdev devices to netdev2
(when it is merged). PR 4646 provides the port for the at86rf2xx radio as
an example.

Hope this was helpful enough. If you have further questions just ask :-)

Best regards,
Martine
