Well you could patch the source yourself and see if it works. It's been
a while but you need to find the actual revision not the one that pciconf
prints out (I think if you select the verbose boot option it might 
print it in dmesg), then add that "real" revision code to 
/usr/src/sys/pci/if_rlreg.h, rebuild the kernel and go from there...

(Or file a PR and wait for Pyun to get back to you :)
