FreeBSD also includes the firmware, by special permission from Intel.
Do you think it's possible that NetBSD could get the same permission from Intel? Or is there a philosophical problem with how Intel licenses the software? Also, Warner, I'm curious. Why does FreeBSD license the software when they don't (as far as I can tell) support the device?
