Subject: Re: kern/155498: [ral] ral(4) needs to be resynced with OpenBSD&#39;s
 to gain RT2860/2870 support.

 I've seen that RT2860 support has been MFC'd to 9-STABLE (great!) and
 gave it a shot. My ral device is:
 ral0@pci0:2:0:0:       class=0x028000 card=0x130f1043 chip=0x07811814
 rev=0x00 hdr=0x00
     vendor     = 'Ralink corp.'
     device     = 'RT2860'
     class      = network

 The driver attaches and I get a ral0 interface, but it seems not to
 function. Kernel logs say:
