OK, I'll speak out.  Today, the list is useless.  When freebsd-amd64
was introduced years ago, it was a good idea to have a list of 
supported motherboards because well freebsd-amd64 was new.  Today,
there are simply too many motherboards to keep an accurate list.
Not to mention that manufacturers are constantly dropping older
model motherboards for the next latest and greatest design.  MSI
lists 20 different boards for AMD processors alone.  Three of
those boards have flashing "new" icons next to the model numbers.
