Don't ndis(4) ndiscvt and ndisgen(8)  essentially accomplish what the OP 
is requesting? See the handbook section

or the man page for ndiscvt:

While doing the conversion looks a bit beyond what we would expect of an 
end-user, it does seem to offer a path for using hardware whose 
manufacturer does not support FreeBSD. Is there anything beyond licensing 
issues preventing such drivers from being included in the distribution, or 
made downloadable in FreeBSD form?
