 The one that comes with FreeBSD 12.2-RELEASE r366954.
 bhyve nor bhyvectl have an option that shows the version, afaik.

 I see
 ixl0: <Intel(R) Ethernet Connection X722 for 10GBASE-T - 2.3.0-k> mem 0xc4000000-0xc4ffffff,0xc5008000-0xc500ffff irq 36 at device 0.0 numa-domain 0 on pci8
 so 2.3.0-k
 I see version 1.12.3.  I'll go try that.  But I do not understand how
 2.3.0-k relates to 1.12.3 yet.

 I just have ixl NICs on this machine.  So I don't know.
 (In an other server I have a X540 NIC, that is ix on the FreeBSD side
 and ixv in the NetBSD guest.  That works stable and fast, but just for
 *one* guest, I documented that story on, which is work in 
 On this machine with ixl, multiple FreeBSD and Linux guests work.
