Bug ID: 210799
           Summary: if_bwi broken
           Product: Base System
           Version: 10.3-RELEASE
          Hardware: ppc
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: wireless

After I upgraded from FreeBSD 9.0 to 10.3-RELEASE on my Mac Mini G4, I found
that "kldload if_bwi" would make the system unstable, and if I included it to
be loaded in loader.conf, I could not even boot. This used to work just fine.

Digging through the commits the bwi folder of the git clone of freebsd, I found
the issue:

commit ad311f67aaa6771c007f5046d032924146784a23
Author: mav <>

    MFC r280347: Remove MAXBSIZE use from drivers where it has nothing to do.

    In some cases limits are just not needed, in others -- DFLTPHYS is the
    right constant to use instead.

Reverting this commit made the system stable, if_bwi started working, and I
could boot again.
