Bhyve: virtio-net very slow with FreeBSD 12.0 Host

Is the slow performance in the guest? Are you using UEFI? If guest, have
you tried the patches in PR 236922? I don't have bhyve in my
environment so I don't know what chipset (legacy i440fx or recent Q35)
bhyve can emulate. The man pages and wiki didn't specify. The original
work for the patches in that PR was done by Brian Venteicher (@FreeBSd) but
was not committed to the official source. I just made it into a patch for
my personal use and others also. In reviewing the code to make the patch,
I noticed there are some changes to network stack.
Also, you post the "pciconf -lBbcevV" output of the guest at pastebin?
