I am the maintainer of the tdfx(4) driver.

Table of GIANT-locked network drivers (where I found IFF_NEEDSGIANT flags): NetworkNeedsGiant

Additionally, I remain pretty active in the using-FreeBSD-as-your-desktop scene, and maintain some helpful work on keeping up with amd64 compatibility.

As part of the above work, I've been maintaining some patches to FreeBSD to fix some bugginess in the HP Compaq 6715b Notebook computer. I have some custom-rolled 7.0-RELEASE ISOs available here:, as the default ISO kernel will not recognize the SATA HD on boot. You'll need to read the instructions on my page, however.
