Problems with SSH and Realtek driver

I had a problem with the sshd disconnecting incoming connections after a few
seconds of inactivity. I tried a lot and found no solution for this so I
ended up with trying the latest driver from here :
and since the driver is from mid November last year I did not expect it to
be any better. I actually expected FreeBSD to have that driver with the
kernel but it seems like it's not. After installing this driver all my
problems are gone. The problem is I have to install 4 servers with the same
Realtek NIC. What would be the best way to do this and to compile the driver
static with the kernel. I would like to avoid loading it as a module for
every server. Does a snapshot release maybe have the latest Realtek driver ?
