I only have a sis0 and sk0 interface on my workstation. Right now, I'm
transferring an ISO image back and forth in an endless between this
workstation and a SunFire V210 on the same LAN, to see if any drops are
caught with sis0 running in polling mode. Non-polling mode is next and
then I can try sk0 during the weekend.
