Pyun YongHyeon has fixed a lot of driver issues (i.e. re(4), bfr(4), vr(4))
over the last few months, many are already in CURRENT or RELENG_7 (not
sure how many of them made it into 7.0-RELEASE) or posted as patches
to the current@ mailing list.

If you have problems, please see if they persist with a CURRENT snapshot.
If they do, please post to the current@ mailing list with details.
