Default Re: Any ideas when FreeBSD AMD64 driver is out?

It seems that FreeBSD/amd64 doesn't currently support loadable kernel modules; there also doesn't seem to be FreeBSD/x86 (?), let alone Linux binary compatibility.
Hmm...fraid not:

Loadable kernel modules now work and are enabled in the amd64 build.
Preliminary support for running 32-bit Linux binaries on amd64 has been added. This feature is enabled with the COMPAT_LINUX32 kernel option.
Granted, it's preliminary, but the loadable kernel modules are completely implemented in there. Why would you need linux binary compat for a FreeBSD AMD64 driver, anyway? Shouldn't it be natively built on a FreeBSD AMD64 machine?
