I can confirm that this (mykbsd60x86-126.96.36.199-src.tgz) package compiles and
attaches OK to both of built-in LAN controllers on the ASUS P5W DH motherboard
under mid-August RELENG_6:
myk0: <Marvell 88E8053 Gigabit Ethernet Controller, Ver. 188.8.131.52> port
0xa800-0xa8ff mem 0xff7fc000-0xff7fffff irq 16 at device 0.0 on pci3
myk0: Ethernet address: 00:17:31:ee:d1:aa
myk1: <Marvell 88E8053 Gigabit Ethernet Controller, Ver. 184.108.40.206> port
0xb800-0xb8ff mem 0xff8fc000-0xff8fffff irq 19 at device 0.0 on pci4
myk1: Ethernet address: 00:17:31:ee:d8:7f
Data transfers (at least in media auto-detect mode) also work OK both in
10/FULL and 100/FULL mode (haven't tried 1000 yet).

So I've got 2 questions:
1. Has situation with this driver improved somehow (is somebody going to
support it and commit into the CURRENT)?
2. What kinds of performance problems / stability issues should I expect
with the driver in it's current state under 6-STABLE?
