I note DragonFly have acx(4) driver, which supports some acx100
and acx111 wireless chips:

There is a FBSD port for acx100, which is broken for versions > 6:

but no FBSD port for acx111, though one can presumably start it from


1. Any reason why acx driver exists on DragonFly but not on FBSD?

2. Is it possible and practical to port the dragonfly acx(4) driver
to FBSD?

3. What is easier - to port acx driver from DragonFly to FBSD, or
to develop a port for acx100+111?

4. Provided the acx100+111 FBSD port is available and working, what
is more efficient - using a kernel acx module or acx built from ports?

many thanks
