I am assuming that you have Proxmox running and a pfSense virtual machine already created.
Configure the Proxmox Test RepositoryThe first thing we need to do is enable the Proxmox test repository so that we may install the 3.10 kernel.
echo 'deb http://download.proxmox.com/debian wheezy pvetest' >> /etc/apt/sources.list
Install the 3.10 Kernel
apt-get install pve-kernel-3.10.0-6
Edit Grub ConfigurationWe need to pass a kernel flag to enable IOMMU. In my case I am using an AMD processor and added amd_iommu=on to the following line in /etc/default/grub. If you are using an Intel processor you would add intel_iommu=on.
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet amd_iommu=on"Update the Grub configuration
update-grubReboot the server. By default the 3.10 kernel should be selected.
Identify Your NICsIdentify the PCI devices you want to passthrough to your virtual machine.
lspciIn my case I was looking for my Intel NICs.
lspci | grep Intel 03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82541PI Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 05) 04:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82541PI Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 05)You will need to note their addresses.
Edit the Virtual Machine ConfigurationBelow is an example of my working configuration. You can find these configurations in /etc/pve/qemu-server/. The file you are looking for will correspond with the virtual machine ID. In my case 100.conf.
boot: cdn bootdisk: ide0 cores: 2 cpu: qemu32 hostpci0: 03:00.0,pcie=1,driver=vfio hostpci1: 04:00.0,pcie=1,driver=vfio ide0: local:100/vm-100-disk-1.qcow2,format=qcow2,size=16G ide2: local:iso/pfSense-LiveCD-2.2-RELEASE-i386.iso,media=cdrom,size=206916K machine: pc-q35-2.0 memory: 1024 name: pfSense onboot: 1 ostype: other smbios1: uuid=0f590e3e-88a0-4084-8a6f-f5a2380a01fa sockets: 2 tablet: 0Notice that I added the hostpci0, hostpci1, and machine options. The hostpciX options identify which PCI devices we want to passthrough. As we found above I was looking for my NICs at 03:00.0 and 04:00.0. The machine must be set to pc-q35-2.0 for PCI passthrough to work with FreeBSD from my experience.
