Forwarding this to FreeBSD-net and FreeBSD-hackers, in case someone
wants to adopt the code.

I got a new network adapter (Longshine 8039TX; take a look here:
http://longshine.de/produkt/1000mbit/giga-eng.html). I have been
looking for drivers for STABLE and found this post:
It mentions a module (sources), which you can download here:
The chipset comes from the company:
Tamarack Microelectronics Inc. in Taiwan.
I installed it on my STABLE box and it seems to work fine.
Can someone of the committers take a look at the sources?
I think the license is OK (it seems to be a BSD-type
license). I hope that you can confirm that it is safe to
use this module.
For those who want to try it, here some advice (it's really
weird, so read it please):
1) unzip the file in an empty folder
2) extract the tar-ball
3) rename the Readme.txt to rio.tgz
4) extract rio.tgz
5) cp the Makefile from ./rio subdirectory
to the directory with the module sources
6) create a soft-link "pci -> ." in
the same directory
7) run make
8) done, the result is: if_rio.ko
I've asked to add it to ports ealier, but noone answered
I have tested this driver for 3 weeks now and it works
well for me on FreeBSD-4.9-STABLE. It does not compile
