Firstly:
Thank you very much Renato and the pfSense team.

Secondly:
Will this be available in the next nightly snapshot, or will there be a holding period before being merged into the nightly source?

It will be in the next snapshot build run, which if I am not mistaken is happening at the moment. So check in a few hours.

No, 2.0.2 will not include ixgbe 2.5.0 driver, only 2.1, which is based on FreeBSD 8.3 will include it.

No, it's such a big change for 2.0.x (based on FreeBSD 8.1), that only receives bugfixes and small changes.
