Lagg Failover Mode Master Interface
when creating a lagg interface in failover mode I am not able to choose the master interface.
The first interface in the list becomes the master, which in my case is making
the lagg choosing a 100mbit interface over a 1gbit interface.
An additional drop down menu would be nice.

Unfortunately FreeBSD doesn't support setting any such options for lagg.
From lagg (4):
There is no way to configure LACP administrative variables, including
system and port priorities. The current implementation always performs
active-mode LACP and uses 0x8000 as system and port priorities.

The above is true for an lagg interface
that is running in LACP mode.
This bug was filed for an lagg interface
that is running failover mode.
example em1 master:
ifconfig lagg0 up laggproto failover laggport em1 laggport em0
example em0 master:
ifconfig lagg0 up laggproto failover laggport em0 laggport em1
So the only thing needed is a interface priority in the web interface
which is observed when calling the ifconfig command.
