FWIW, several of us should have motherboards that support it now.
For example the Dell PE29XX/PE1950 line now has support if you upgrade
old machines to a newer BIOS and then turn it on in the BIOS setup.
I'm not sure what em(4) cards support it. So I think hardware should
be available now. At the time the PE29XX family BIOS did not support it :-(
