Add bnxt(4) as kernel module
the 11.2-BETA3 release is based on freebsd 11.2 and this has the bnxt (10G broadcom) driver but it isnt being included in the release. A quick look through the source tree indicates its there and looks like its been set not to compile.
Manually going into the source tree and doing a manual compile of the module successfully completes and the module can be loaded into freenas-11.2beta3 successfully.
Is there any chance of changing things so that it is compiled by default and will be included in future beta and rc releases please?
Unfortunately Im new to freebsd and I therefore dont know enough on what to change to ensure its built in future so I cant create a diff.
This chipset is used in newer dell servers for 10G onboard.

Attached is the debug as requested. It was taken from the machine after I loaded the bnxt driver I compiled from the source.
