This is the so-called revision-B1 chip, it is newer than the A1 that
is included to the 6.1-RELEASE.
So you have two routes:
1) upgrade to the RELENG-6 (currently it is 6.2-PRERELEASE),
2) apply the patch given in the PR99903,
The latter patch is very simple, so probably it is the simplest thing
to do: it just adds the new PCI-ID for the chip, chip description and
4 extra lines of code. Do you need directions how to apply the patch
or how to upgrade to RELENG-6?
