I wish I could do that, but my ISP doesn't offer IPV6 space.

Could you please make this patch in HEAD then mergge it to RELENG_7, so users with this nic wont drop FreeBSD 7.0 when it is out because the nic wont work out of box at least for IPV4 users.

Again, I appreciate your help, and the great support for the community you offer. :-)
