WD Passport USB 3.0 Drive Connecting as USB 2.0

First off, I know my USB 3.0 drivers work fine with FreeBSD as my 32 GB SanDisk USB 3.0 drive connects as USB 3.0 perfectly fine. However, my Western Digital USB 3.0 Passport drive does not. Also, shouldn't it be using the xhci driver instead of ehci?

Under Windows 7 x64, my WD Passport connects showing speed "SUPER". Can anybody help with this and/or shed some light on the usbconfig/camcontrol discrepancy?

what is Your # dmesg | grep xhci output?

I use WD USB 3.0 drive and it attaches as USB 3.0 and works as 3.0 (very fast).
