FreeBSD support for Jetway J7F4

I have searched around to verify that everything works fine for this 
motherboard with integrated CPU: Jetway J7F4. I understand it has a 
CN700 north bridge and a VT8237R or VT8237RP south bridge, and Realtek 
RLT8110SC dual LAN.

I have found reports that FreeBSD hangs when doing ifconfig re1 up, has 
this been solved? Does it work if only one NIC is used?

I understand from wikipedia that autonegotiate of SATA speed with 
VT8237R fails, but what about VT8237RP? Not a huge problem though, I 
plan to get a disk that accepts speed setting by a jumper.

Does RAID work with this south bridge?

Thanks, Erik
