PAUSE support for Ethernet interfaces ?

I'm researching the topic of PAUSE counters (receiving side) for
FreeBSD systems.

That's a sort of flow control with ethernet, see e.g.:

Cisco switches seem to receive and count them, which helps
to find short-term (seconds) overloaded links.
Can FreeBSD 6.x or 7.x handle PAUSE frames, at least receiving them ?

Thanks for any pointer!
