> a) Witness panic during boot time due to a specific memory allocation.
> b) Bypass usage of disk labels to ensure that devices do not get reordered 
> under FreeBSD.
> c) Locks up on 32 bit builds.
> d) Lack of KVP support for BSD drivers

> We are working hard every day to finish these items.

> Even though an official announcement has not gone out, I would highly 
> encourage you to start testing the drivers. As they are in project branch now 
> they should be easy to compile. The only requirement is to set up disk labels 
> before rebooting a kernel that includes the Hyper-V drivers otherwise the 
> system will not boot up.

> Please let me know if you have more questions or have feedback.

> Thanks again for your interest.
