Thanks for your work, but... (see below)

Here it goes:

  ~> uname -a
FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT #10: Thu Aug  4 
4 EEST 2005     root at  amd64

This is Athlon64 3000+ -based box, Asus A8N SLI MB.
qemu itself builds and works like a charm ('sept the sound doesn't work), 
but as far as kqemu is concerned - it loads perfectly all right but no 
/dev/kqemu... is created. No warnings, no panics... and no kqemu's speed 
boost (obviously).

Is there anything I could do?
