Why hasnt this stuff been merged to FreeBD yet? I think a lot of people
are anxious to see support for this, as most current Intel based boards
utilize this, and FreeBSD still has not support for it. The chipset has
been out for a long time now. FreeBSD seems to be really lagging behind in
hardware support lately.
