First of all thank you for your work! I started this off of it. But I
could not get it to compile against a recent HEAD so I had to hack
away until it compiled. I remember I had to update sysdev/netif/ar/
along the way for example, and I also incorporated more recent FreeBSD
changes such as the refcount implementation (which in turn made me do
some additions to sys/cpu/i386/include/atomic.h, which is a little
low-level for me so I'm not sure about those changes).

Regarding bluetooth, I think that there is another effort going on to
port the netbsd/openbsd version (non-netgraph) so I will not pay much
attention to this one. I'm mostly interested in the remaining parts of
