Support for udav USB to Ethernet adapter
The udav is listed as supported but the driver is not included in the kernel build.
I've downloaded the developer's ISO and built it as a loadable module (I also needed to patch the driver to get my device recognised.)

udav is not in the GENERIC kernel of FreeBSD 6.2, 6.3 nor 7.0 hence we didn't have it. I just committed a change to add to future builds, though that won't work for you since you need a patch. If you send the patch to email@example.com we can get it included.
Patch is in FreeBSD head: src/sys/dev/usb/if_udav.c revision 1.35 and src/sys/dev/usb/usbdevs revision 1.348. A quick glance suggests it hasn't been made in the 7.0 branch nor in the 6.x branch.

It's probably worth contacting the FreeBSD developer involved to see if you can persuade them to MFC (Merge From Current) the patch to the RELENG_7 and RELENG_6 branches. That way, the patch will find its way into FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE (and 6.4-RELEASE if that ever happens).
If the patch is only in HEAD, it won't ship until 8.0-RELEASE, which could be 18 months away.
Good suggestion. Thanks.
