Maxim, I patched if_sk in a similar fashion, and got the same errors you
did. I took a look at the Linux sky2 driver which works with the
MacBook Yukon-II, and the Yukon-II chipset is very different from the
However, I did find that the SysKonnect-provided Yukon-II driver works
quite well (see
http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-net/2006-January/009543.html). Building the driver was easy. I just untarred the source to /usr/src/sys/dev/myk, and did a make all. With this driver, I was able to get the wired ethernet in the MacBook to pass traffic.
BTW, thanks for your work on the reboot issue. Oh, and are you using
Alt at boot-time to select FreeBSD, or have you done some EFI magic to
make FreeBSD the default boot partition?
