i disabled re_diag() in /usr/src/sys/dev/if_re.c, and that caused the 
kernel trap to go away, as per my original email. also, see my followup

to be recognized by the rl driver and this seems to make it work.

i am on a recent stable, circa two weeks ago as well. have there been 
significant changes to the re driver since ?
