I'm looking at 'porting' pfSense to an ixp42x (xscale) platform.  There
are a host of issues, mostly around the simple fact that its dangerous
to put a designed-for-disk filesystem in flash, and both m0n0wall and
pfsense really *do* want a filesystem.

(Boy it would be nice if there were replacements for "mtd" and "jffs2"
on *BSD.  But there aren't.)

My board has a CF socket on it, so I plan to use that.

This doesn't solve the problem for you running it on your netgear
platform, however.

Also, there isn't any support for the IPSEC acceleration in the NPEs
under freebsd (yet).
