How does Nifs compare to Port drivers in OTP 21 and beyond..? It used to be
that port drivers were more suited for threaded c libraries etc, but it
seems to me now you can do anything with with either.

Will port drivers be deprecated?

Which should I choose when starting a new hardware driver (assuming I have
ruled out ports and c nodes, I'm aware of the implications)?
