Thanks a lot.
Where can I download the updated "sysfs.h" file?

I try to add pkeys on ib0 port.
Usually in Linux I did:
echo 0x800c > /sys/class/net/ib0/create_child
To Make sure you see a new interface: ib0.800c
How can I do it on FreeBSD? There is no "/sys/class/net/ib0/create_child" directory.
For all sysfs entries there *should* be a corresponding sysctl for it. Do sysctl -Na | grep create_child and you might find the node that you seek. After that all you need to do is call sysctl <node>=0x800c and it should achieve the same thing as setting the sysfs node.
Please note that you must be the patch attached to http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=kern/174213 in order for things to function properly as the sysfs handling code is still broken on HEAD. I've CCed Jeff Roberson about it a few times, and asked for assistance from Xin as well as I haven't gotten any feedback from Jeff.
