If what you are saying is the case they will probably just send me some canned letter pretty much saying NO! Ideally other than providing source code! I am not expecting them to really give me a lot of information but I sent an email requesting for more information to Cavium. It will never make it into FreeBSD under those conditions. I am still waiting to hear back from Cavium.

Well I had told them in the cabium I am only looking for the driver, I don’t care about their testing boards and stuff. You would need some sort of fimeware upload style implementation or something like NDISgen.
