i219 Driver for FreeBSD??

I've been watching this go nowhere since October 2015, so I thought maybe someone could shed some light on why Intel is now a half year out from releasing a chipset they don't have driver support for? Specifically, I'm referencing FreeBSD drivers for i219, of which this thread on the Dev forums keeps getting the "it's coming" canard...

https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/networking/topic/595027 i219 Driver Support for FreeBSD

So, can anyone comment on this? Maybe we'll see support before Cannonlake...

Vince, thank you for checking into it. To help, I did some digging of which you're getting help:

https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=206533 206533 – Intel I219-V in 11-CURRENT and 10-STABLE

This appears to be open, but only superficially as they have CLOSED the underlying job on the Phabricator:

Maybe your team will know when it can be had as a standalone package...
