#498 Add support for Realtek RTL8111C gigabit NIC

Interface (97)

Hopefully I'm putting this in the right place. I'd like to have native support for the 8111c chipset in FreeNAS, This is the embedded NIC on my MSI Wind PC (Intel Atom board).

I've been able to compile the OEM driver from source (v1.7.7) on a separate FreeBSD 6.4 machine and install it successfully on FreeNAS 0.69. It works great: Fast and stable.

The driver source is here: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=13&PFid=5&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false

I will try to attach a compiled (FBSD 6.4) version of the kernel module if needed.

Please let me know if I can do anything else.

    Thank you very much.
    I was looking for this driver too, but had no time to make it.

    thanks for this, I think I'm going to go back to .69 while .7 is worked on. How did you install this in your freenas config?
