It's supported in -current, by the wm(4) driver. It's just another PCI
device ID added to the driver, really, so you could just add this in
to the driver's wm_products[] array:

          "Intel i82541PI 1000BASE-T Ethernet",
          WM_T_82541_2,         WMP_F_1000T },

There have been other improvements to the wm(4) driver since 2.0,
but it looks like all the critical bug fixes for it have been pulled
