Which motherboard? I have an Asus P5Q Pro, and it's being recognized
properly on RELENG_7_1:

% grep ale /var/run/dmesg.boot
ale0: <Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCIe Ethernet> port 0xdc00-0xdc7f
mem 0xfeac0000-0xfeafffff irq 17 at device 0.0 on pci2
ale0: 960 Tx FIFO, 1024 Rx FIFO
ale0: Using 1 MSI messages.
ale0: 4GB boundary crossed, switching to 32bit DMA addressing mode.
miibus0: <MII bus> on ale0
ale0: Ethernet address: 00:23:54:31:7f:5b
ale0: [FILTER]

relevant pciconf -lv output:

ale0 at pci0:2:0:0:        class=0x020000 card=0x82261043 chip=0x10261969
rev=0xb0 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Attansic (Now owned by Atheros)'
    class      = network
    subclass   = ethernet

iperf (ale0 as -s):  [  3]  0.0-10.0 sec  1.10 GBytes    941 Mbits/sec
iperf (ale0 as -c):  [  3]  0.0-10.0 sec  1.08 GBytes    931 Mbits/sec

So all seems well here.
