First: Congratulations upon 7.1 final RELEASE !
On Fri, 24 Oct 2008, I pointed out the
"possibility of a severe flaw in the logic of FreeBSD's kernel
handling multiple host bridges
and the corresponding assignment of
(in principle, correctly detected)
devices to their host bridges"

but unfortunately, I did not get any response at all.
Two mails to "kensmith at cse.Buffalo.EDU" asking for any contact e-mail
address of a FreeBSD Kernel developer knowing his way around
host-bridges and PCI-devices also gave no reaction.
I am sorry for this noise
(I would have preferred to handle this more quietly),
but finally I take hope to the advice of Daniel Gerzo (Thanks @ danger):
"If you will not receive any feedback I would recommend you to send an
email to current@ and stable@ mailing lists. PR's sometimes get lost
in the traffic and not all developers are checking GNATS all the time."
Looking forward to a contact
