After reading http://www.mail-archive.com/freebsd-stable@freebsd.org/msg83981.html
I added:

  "HP ... ADAPTER" },

to /usr/src/sys/dev/bce/if_bce.c.

After reboot I get SerDes controllers not supported in dmesg,
device_attach: bce0 attach returned 19.

Pciconf -lv says:

bce0 at pci7:0:0: class=0x020000 card=0x703b103c chip=0x16ac14e4 rev=0x11 hdr=0x00
vendor = Broadcom Corporation'
class = networl
subclass = ethernet

bce1 likewise.

There doesn't seem to be any available drivers atm. I (even :-)) tried
ubuntu 6.10 server (amd64) and it didn't detect any network-cards

The switch is a 16 ports gb passthrough switch.
