Looks like the ethernet chipset might be another PCI ID not covered by msk(4).
none3 at pci0:4:0:0: class=0x020000 card=0xff501179 chip=0x436c11ab
vendor = 'Marvell Semiconductor (Was: Galileo Technology Ltd)'
class = network
subclass = ethernet
cap 01 = powerspec 3 supports D0 D1 D2 D3 current D0
cap 05[5c] = MSI supports 1 message, 64 bit
cap 10[c0] = PCI-Express 2 legacy endpoint
I CC'ed Pyun, but I'm not sure that anything can be done because this
is a PCI-e based driver *shrugs*.
As for the wireless driver, could you forward with more details about
your laptop, like the spec sheet, perhaps? We'll need the model type
for the laptop at least so we can find out the required specs (Toshiba
releases various revisions of each model with different specs).
You won't get 64-bit X11 support with hardware acceleration because
neither nVidia or ATI has a working 64-bit driver due to vmem related
