Ok, brain fart.  Please forgive my ineptitude.  I once sent an email
inquiring about the Intel 82599, which is this NIC.  Responses to that
mail say it's supported by the ixgbe driver.  My stable/8 installation
(5/21/2012) probes it with an ix driver that I cannot find any info
on.  The ixgbe manage indicates it only supports 82598 based
controllers.  Not sure what to think here...
