This is something we won't have the ability to fix directly here, since
it sounds like you got a newer driver that hasn't been ported back to
6.2-Stable yet.

However if you go ahead and post this info to the freebsd-stable list,
its possible that one of the FBSD devs can back-port the proper driver
so we can include it also :)
