[CentOS-virt] freebsd as kvm guest

I have about ten installations of pfSense 2 in CentOS/KVM as FreeBSD 8.x
profile and experience no problems except significant CPU load at 50-100
Mbps stream shaping/routing/filtering (about 50-60% of one Penitum G630
core at 75 MBps), but this is because of e1000 nics emulation (freebsd
8.x in pfsense 2 has no virtio drivers included as I can remember).
