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

  Hello,

  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

  uname:
  FreeBSD block.xn--pl-wia.net 9.1-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 9.1-PRERELEASE #1
  r241898+9dad7f0: Tue Oct 23 21:58:07 CEST 2012

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

  ral0: <Ralink Technology RT2790> mem 0xfe8f0000-0xfe8fffff irq 16 at

You need to create a wlandev wlan0 device from the ral0 device..

See the Handbook for more information:
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/network-wireless.html
See in particular section 32.3.3.1.1.  Thanks.
