Yes, 3ware now supports FreeBSD!

The driver you find on the 3ware website has been
extensively tested on 4.8, and not yet on 4.9.

The changes in this driver should soon make their
way into RELENG_4.  They are already checked into HEAD.

While looking for firmware updates on the 3ware site, I notice they now 
have FreeBSD drivers available for download marked as "beta"

The readme with the drivers download says,

"This directory contains the 3ware driver (twe.ko) for 7000 series
storage controllers, and the corresponding source code.  The latest
source code can be downloaded from the freebsd kernel tree, by running
The source code can be found at:

However, what is in RELENG_4 differs from what is downloaded from the 3ware 

Also, its marked 4.8. Will it work with 4.9 which has all the PAE changes 
in it?
