This revision of Marvell NIC isn't supported under FreeBSD 7.0 or 8.0
(CURRENT/HEAD). I've looked at the source to msk(4), and it matches
what's in the manpage, so it's not a documentation mistake.
Support for the 88E8040 can be added to the msk(4) driver, probably via
a PCI ID addition to the msk_products struct in
src/sys/dev/msk/if_msk.c, but sometimes more is needed.
I've CC'd the maintainer of msk(4), PYUN Yong-Hyeon, who can work
with you and provide patches to get support for that NIC. (Please note
that when referring to him, his first name is Yong-Hyeon, not Pyun.)
