I think I accidently posted a reply to this via private mail with an

opportunity to apologize to anyone to gets this message twice.

That's interesting to me. Is there any further information available
on that subject?

I've been using SiL chips with Linux for quite a while with no
problems, and I was planning to do the same with FreeBSD as well, but
if there are known problems with SiL and FreeBSD I may need to rethink
that decision.

(To be more exact, I've been using the SiL 311[24] chips)
