I think FreeBSD has no driver support for Attansic L1 Gigabit
Ethernet. It seems that the Attansic L1 is used on onboard network
devices(LOM) for Asus M2V, P5B-E and P5L-VM 1394 etc. I don't know
there are publicly available documentations for the hardware but it
seems that Linux already has an experimental driver for the hardware.
I don't have the hardware so writing a driver for the hardware is
not possible to me but other developers that have the hardware can
help you.
