Agere ET1310B (ST Lab gigabit LAN card)

I just bought this ethernet card for my ProLiant ML110G4 machine but FreeBSD
doesn't recognize it. After some Googling I guess it is not supported at all.
Am I right?

pciconf -v -l says this:

none0 at pci1:0:0: class=0x020000 card=0xed0011c1 chip=0xed0011c1 rev=0x02 hdr=0x00
     vendor   = 'Lucent/Agere Systems (Was: AT&T MicroElectronics)'
     class    = network
     subclass = ethernet

 From the ST Lab web page:

Chipset:Agere ET1310B
Bus Interface: PCI Express x1
* Fully compatible with PCI Express 1.0a specifications
* Compliant to IEEE802.3, IEEE802.3u & IEEE802.3ab
* Supports for IEEE802.3x Full Duplex flow control
* Supports IEEE 802.1Q Virtual LAN (VLAN) Tag
* Auto-Negotiation supports for Auto-Detect 10/100/1000Mbps data rate
    and Full/Half-Duplex operation mode
* Supports ACPI and PCI power management
* PXE 2.0 support (Optional)
* Supports Wake on Lan function
* Data transfer rate at 1000 Mbps for IEEE 802.3ab
* Throughput of one-lane PCI Express at 2.5 Gbps

Any plans to support this card in the future? What is the procedure of writing
a new driver for a new card/chipset?
