#8189 closed enhancement (fixed)

FreeBSD compat library needs to be updated to work with latest FreeBSD Sources

The latest FreeBSD network / wireless card drivers had some structure changes (mii, phys) which prevent porting new wireless / ethernet driver code.

We need to update the FreeBSD compat layer to keep up with FreeBSD driver improvements and new hardware support without making individual BSD driver changes.

Please specify the FreeBSD target release and the one we support atm.

It looks like 8.2 is whats used currently:

9.0 is in RC2, so it the 9.0 code should be just about stable enough to port.

Also, the argument there is to use current.. while I personally think using current is a good idea, lets try to get to 9.0 before we push to current :)
