I too wanted to use PFSense on KVM/EL6 but network performance was 
disappointing. My network engineers reverted to using VMware ESXi for 
the time being.
My hope is with Fbsd 10 which includes virtio drivers by default (and 
also has a SMP friendly PF :> ).

BTW, here's a QCOW2 of it, import image as RHEL6 profile (has all the 
virtio stuff):

The root passwd is "password" so change it ASAP!

Even with this image I could not saturate 1 Gbps link (just rudimentary 
test with "fetch -o /dev/null"), but it's still an improvement.
