Hmm, it's Attansic L1 gigabit ethernet controller. ATM as you said
there is no FreeBSD driver for the controller but I think Kevin Lo(kelvo@)
is working on age(4) to support the ethernet controller. I'm not sure
whether age(4) also supports Attansic F1 ethernet controller.
I also heard ndis(4) works OK for the ethernet.

Long time ago when I asked for datasheet for the controller the
vendor simply rejected it so I gave up. AFAIK the vendor released
Linux driver under GPL so it's doable to write a driver but it would
be time-consuming and tedious work. :-(
