No, you need more to get the complete driver:
I patched my 5.0 Beta source tree as you sugested. It builds clean, the
age0 device is attached. But when I try to use it I get this kernel
arpresolve: unable to enter address for on null (could not 
allocate llinfo)
arpresolve: can't allocate llinfo on age0 for

Any hints for further debugging?
That's a symptom of a botched port from OpenBSD, in the ioctl routine.

Thanks to Jochen Kunz help with testing, the ioctl handling and
a bug in handlig Rx interrupts have been fixed.
Now the driver seems to be functional:

ping -nf
PING ( 56 data bytes

---- PING Statistics----
28949 packets transmitted, 28949 packets received, 0.0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 0.157/0.364/2.272/0.023 ms
  2710.6 packets/sec sent,  2710.6 packets/sec received

I hope, more people will give it a try now.

Can you run some multicast tests to make sure the rx filters are working properly?
