Ok I've ported FreeBSD's mos(4) driver and pushed it to master. Please
test with your adapter.
You will need the following 3 commits:

Also, Markus Pfeiffer has pushed a needed fix to USB ethernet code:

The first two commits are needed for the driver and the third one updates
a config file of devd(8) so that the driver will be automatically loaded
if the adapter is plugged in. The fourth commit isn't strictly necessary
for the operation of the driver but without it, the module (if_mos.ko) has
to be kldloaded manually. The fourth commit is needed in any case.
You can either rebuild with master if you want (which has all the commits)
or you can cherry-pick them if e.g. you want to stick with 4.0. After
applying you need to at least rebuild/install the kernel. However, it is
probably best to rebuild the whole system
(buildworld/buildkernel/installkernel/installworld/upgrade) to also get
the benefits of the devd module autoloading.
Please contact me if you need more help with applying etc.
