During the last couple of weeks I have converted two more drivers (vge(4) and axe(4)) to support ALTQ(4). Additionaly, Max Laier has converted aue(4).
Although ALTQ has been a part of FreeBSD for almost 3 years now, there are still lots of drivers that do not support it yet. “Why is that?” you may ask. Actually the driver modifications necessary are minimal, so no problem there. What is missing are people with the hardware to test the changes to make sure that
- they actually work
- they do not break driver operation without ALTQ
Testing ALTQ patches does not take a lot of time, the procedure is outlined at http://people.freebsd.org/~mlaier/ALTQ_driver . The following is a (non-exhaustive) list of drivers that have not yet been converted to support ALTQ. If you own any hardware that is supported by one of these drivers, please consider contacting me for a patch to test, or to donate said hardware if you can spare it.
- arl(4) (probably obsolete)
- cnw(4) (probably obsolete)
- cs(4) (probably obsolete)
- ex(4) (probably obsolete)
- fe(4) (probably obsolete)
- ie(4) (probably obsolete)
