I don't know nothing about mxge so I can't comment, but I know that
FreeBSD ixgbe driver is not even close to that of the Linux version. I
switched to Linux just for ixgbe as our network was being standardized
on 10G, and I think that's the best bet. The Linux version of the
driver is actively worked on and I got a lot of help and bug fixes
from the maintainers of the driver, whereas the FreeBSD driver is
hopelessly neglected and broken.
