FreeBSD 6.1 on Thinkpad X41

I installed FreeBSD 6.1 on my corp laptop tonight. The following are notable:
  • acpi_ibm doesn't appear to read much of anything useful. hotkey values work. Little else
  • cpufreq works
  • wacom stylus input magic works via X 'wacom' driver. Shows up as /dev/cuad1
  • ath0 works
  • bge0 works
  • sata works
  • Tablet buttons (rotate/tools/esc/enter/ctrlaltdel) are received by X (viewable by xev(1))
wacom was not properly calibrated initially. Guess-and-check method of screwing with calibration values made everything happy.

I'll post configs and other notes later. Naptime.
