searching for your NIC, I've found this:

11AB	Marvell Semiconductor (Was: Galileo Technology Ltd)
4352	Yukon 88E8038 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller

A google search was leading me to a few discussions on current@ for
this chip.

I guess you've tried to use a patch against -CURRENT with a
6.2-RELEASE version which is not a good idea.

cvs shows, support for this chip has been MFC'd 8 days ago into
-STABLE (see: You
should cvsup to RELENG_6, recompile world + kernel and try msk then.
