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:

559d4eae5dfff0d54adcd6f44b6c13d24d8e9c38 "usb4bsd/if_mos: Make mos(4)  
f85771991983a11fe47770088cd3a413871bdab0 "usb4bsd/if_mos: Sync with  
d4eb5271ecc5fe7fd9dd29fad323940f24e6b8dc "Update devd(8)'s usb.conf for  

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

e8d7ed64935140722e144ba2f7a52ada79792d47 "usb4bsd: Fix usb_etherther and  
cleanup if_axe"

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.
