Really nice to know. What interest me is that whether you have built a
custom kernel or some patches.
I would love to see the patches you might have applied to HEAD.

The boot log seems really impressive if its only an custom build only
with no patches, my favourite DHCP seems
to be working.

Another thing I would like to point out is Beagleone is that once I
was using Linux, there is some thing known as
Cyclic test which lets one test the RT Linux Kernel. I don't thing
there is something similar to that or I am ignorant.
But would love to see that in FreeBSD.
