I'm hoping to have a first run support patch for this chipset within the
next couple weeks. There is a board on the way and once I get it I'm going
to start trying to make this chipset work. And, yes, the FreeBSD people
have got this board working with some minor tweaks of their existing code.
The project I'm getting ready to take on is a partial port of the latest
FreeBSD code in order to get this chipset working.
