I have MSI Z77 MPOWER motherboard with onboard AR9271 quasi-USB chip and would
be glad to be a tester on FreeBSD-current.
Bug in re driver makes this particular version of Realtek 8111E Ethernet not
work in FreeBSD or OpenBSD as of 5.3, but good in NetBSD-current amd64 and
I notice NetBSD and OpenBSD have athn driver which includes AR9271.
On how I update FreeBSD source tree with no Internet access through FreeBSD, I
built subversion from pkgsrc on a NetBSD-current amd64 USB-stick installation,
and use that successfully. With GPT, NetBSD accesses FreeBSD partition with no
problem reading disklabels.
OpenBSD, from live USB (http://liveusb-openbsd.sourceforge.net/), can't read my
hard drive at all, due to lack of GPT support.
