If it's supported, it's been supported by 6.x since 6.3 according to the 
man page.  I couldn't cross-reference "T304" on the chelsio web site, 
but perhaps
it's based on the T3 chipset and will "just work" :)

Follow the instructions in the man page with a BSD 6.3 machine to see if 
it works.

If it doesn't, please repost the output of lspci -v here so we can see 
if it's a card
that should work, but doesn't.
