I'm not sure if this is the same adaptor, but I suspect it's that same
on the one that you're on about.  It's a Gig card that comes built in
to Compaq/HP DL380's and ML380's.

Just used the bge interface (you can even kldload if_bge.ko).  This
was on a 4.8-RC1 machine, however I can see the module on one of my
4.7 machines, so I suspect it's available in that branch too.
