Vivek, could you provide a quick recap? I can't recall if this was a
FBSD driver issue or a HW issue w/Tyan? In either case, I assume
time should result in a fix?
The K8S Pro has a 3rd LAN- good old 10/100. Does anyone know if it's
using the same or different driver? My guess would be that it's
different and hence should work. If so, a bit of patience should
remove immediate need for Intel nics.
