4.11-RELEASE detects, configures, uses em0.
- DragonFlyBSD does not detect or use it.  Does detect dc0 (in VIA MB
chipset) and Sis0, or Rl0, or fxp0

A couple people have mentioned that their em card takes a bit of time to
come online; does em0 "appear" after waiting a short while after boot?
Yep, I can vouch.  Although in my case, em0 showed up in dmesg.  If you 
see it there, you'll have to wait.  Of course, if you don't see it 
there, you're gonna need a more than just a larva :-)
