Joerg Sonnenberger added a driver for the ‘bfe’ device, which is the Broadcom DCM4401 NIC.
If you now set
mixer_enable="YES" in rc.conf, your mixer settings will get saved, thanks to ibotty’s idea and Joerg Sonnenberger’s commit.
(I’m writing this without trying it, but that’s how I read it…)
Matt Dillon has brought in the December 2003 release of ACPI (acpica-unix-20031203) from Intel. The old code is still what’s on by default, as the new code builds but does not yet work.
Matt Dillon’s added experimental support for the Silicon Image 3512 SATA controller.
Incidentally, credit goes to David Rhodus for generating the base patch for all the ATAng work committed by Matt Dillon yesterday.
Matt Dillon has brought in ATAng from FreeBSD 4 except for “the dma chipset changes and the busdma changes”, while retaining the apparently better DragonFly MPIPE version.
Joerg Sonnenberger’s been going on a change rampage lately, adding “__DragonFly__” to a large number of files so that DragonFly-specific compilation can be done.
Joerg Sonnenberger has introduced NEWCARD, taken from FreeBSD 5 (mostly) in November 2002.
David Rhodus has updated OpenSSL to 0.9.7c, and Emiel Kollof (committed by Robert Garrett) brought in an override port for libusb, needed for software like SANE.
Hiten Pandya added support for “Allied Telesis SIC-AT” boards, merged from FreeBSD. A ‘SIC-AT’ appears to be a networking card from a Japanese company.
Joerg Sonnenberger committed a change to
mount that allows you to specify mounting options when doing ‘
mount -a. Chris Pressey put it together from FreeBSD code.
Joerg Sonnenberger committed a patch by Hidetoshi Shimokawa; this patch syncs DragonFly and FreeBSD 5 Firewire support
Matt Dillon commited a number of files for AMD64 support; it is far from complete at this point. These files come from Peter Wemm’s work on FreeBSD 5. However, he noted that the PMAP/MMU/VM support will be from scratch.
Quoted here is his comments on how that will be done:

Eirik Nygaard and Robert Garrett have added 2 new scripts to
/etc/rc.d (they default to off):
resident: Any filenames/pathnames in
/etc/resident.conf are made resident – i.e. dynamic programs listed here will load faster.
varsym: Any variable definitions in
/etc/varsym.conf will turn into system wide varsyms.
If you’re curious about variant symlinks, Chris Pressey submitted (and Matt Dillon committed) additional documentation to the
ln man page that talks about variant symlinks in some detail.
Joerg Sonnenberger has added AMD 8111 support in the ata driver.
Robert Garrett has removed all the FreeBSD/NetBSD references in the DragonFly boot code;
cd /usr/src; make upgrade to upgrade to these newer versions.
Joerg Sonnenberger committed Chris Pressey’s patches to replace some remaining K&R-style declarations with ANSI ones, in libkern.
Joerg Sonnenberger has added gcc 3.3 to the base system. You can set ‘CCVER=gcc3’ to use it, even to do a buildworld/buildkernel, though that is “not recommended”. Andreas Hauser already reported a successful build and boot doing it, though.
Jeroen Ruigrok commited code to recognize the SiS 645DX motherboard drive controllers (see prior mention as UDMA100 instead of UDMA33.
Thanks to Emiel Kollof (sorry I screwed up attribution!), AC97 support has been synced up with FreeBSD, plus support for the following devices has been added by Jeroen Ruigrok:
Diamond Technology Monster (DT0398)
Intersil (Harris) HMP9701
Integrated Technology Express (ITE) ITE2226E and ITE2646E
Texas Instruments TLC320AD90
Asahi Kasei AK4544A and AK4545
Wolfson WM9711L, WM9712L, and WM9709
Texas Instruments’ TLV320AIC27
Conexant SmartDAA HSD11246
