RTL8111C driver for FBSD7

Hey, hey... I made a boo boo and ordered a unit with this nic onboard
(truthfully, I never thought I'd have any trouble since I had done this
before). Loaded 7 and couldn't find the nic. A little investigation
found that the nic was the above, and a little further found that there
was no support for it in the hcl's.

Now I do find it hard to believe there is no way around this- I found a
driver for FBSD4.5-6, is there one for 6.2 or higher? Or will this one
work? Anyone know how to install it?

The driver is only a c and a h file- Makefile is an empty file, and the
readme tells me to rebuild the kernel after removing rl and re in the
conf. Then I build the driver, and kldload it. Any idea why I'd have to
rebuild the kernel?

Cheers guys
