Interesting. I have a machine with a 9240 and a 9261 that I have just upgraded to 12.0 from 10.2 and is working fine with the mfi driver.

However, the standard machine build procedure here includes:


in /boot/loader.conf. This was added to our build procedure back in 2011 to deal with the 9261 not working on FreeBSD 9.0.

I wonder if using MSI interrupts would help with your problem?
