hi pyun... and all....
after a few hours i'm sorry to report that the card is visible but not
usable (yet?!). here is what i have done so far:
1. got the files from http://svn.freebsd.org/viewvc/base/head/sys/dev/
2. applied the patch that pyun provided.
3. replaced if_maddr_rlock(ifp) with IF_ADDR_UNLOCK(ifp) in if_msk.c -
4. replaced the files in /usr/src/sys/dev for mii and msk with he new
ones on the freebsd 7.2 machine.
5. recompiled the kernel..
here is what i get:
from dmesg at boot:
mskc0: <Marvell Yukon 88E8057 Gigabit Ethernet> port 0xde00-0xdeff mem
0xfddfc000-0xfddfffff irq 18 at device 0.0 on pci2
mskc0: unknown device: id=0xba, rev=0x00
device_attach: mskc0 attach returned 6
cant find what 6 stands for but it's not good..
mskc0 at pci0:2:0:0: class=0x020000 card=0x51131297 chip=0x438011ab
vendor = 'Marvell Semiconductor (Was: Galileo Technology Ltd)'
class = network
subclass = ethernet
if i put if_msk_load="YES" in loader.conf dmesg says:
module_register: module msk/miibus already exists!
Module msk/miibus failed to register: 17
module_register: module mskc/msk already exists!
Module mskc/msk failed to register: 17
module_register: module pci/mskc already exists!
Module pci/mskc failed to register: 17
ifconfig doesn't see it. sysinstall does not see it.
