ASUS Xonar DX sound card not detected at boot


I'm using PC-BSD 9.0 with FreeBSD 9.0 kernel x86 and at boot, I see a message "Unindentified sound card...
please report  <at>  PC-BSD support..." something like that.

So, I directly expose the problem to the FreeBSD hardware team because it's a FreeBSD lack of driver.

Here is the output of my "lspci -v" command concerning this sound card :

02:00.0 PCI bridge: PLX Technology, Inc. PEX8112 x1 Lane PCI Express-to-PCI Bridge (rev aa) (prog-if 00
[Normal decode])
    Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0
    Bus: primary=02, secondary=03, subordinate=03, sec-latency=64
    I/O behind bridge: 0000d000-0000dfff
    Capabilities: [50] MSI: Enable- Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+
    Capabilities: [60] Express PCI/PCI-X Bridge, MSI 00

03:04.0 Multimedia audio controller: C-Media Electronics Inc CMI8788 [Oxygen HD Audio]
    Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Virtuoso 100 (Xonar DX)
    Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 16
    I/O ports at d800
    Capabilities: [c0] Power Management version 2

In fact, I think that the "Multimedia audio controller: C-Media Electronics Inc CMI8788 [Oxygen HD
Audio]" is already supported on FreeBSD, but this sound card has something special : it's not a native
PCI-E sound card, but a native PCI one, so it uses the "PCI bridge: PLX Technology, Inc. PEX8112 x1 Lane PCI
Express-to-PCI Bridge (rev aa)" as a bridge to communicate with the motherboard. And THIS component
isn't supported!
