network problems after upgrade

I recently updated a FreeBSD system that has been running fine on 6.2 to
7.0. I rebuilt world & kernel, installed world & kernel, mergemastered,
then rebooted. Now both network cards (em0, an Intel Pro/1000 v6.7.3,
and rl0, an SMC eznet-10/100) are giving continual watchdog timeouts.
Ifconfig shows them as active, with appropriate settings. There are no
IRQ conflicts that I can see. Pinging loopback and the ip address of
each card succeeds, but we can't ping anything outside of the system.
We've tried disabling ipf; we've taken out each card in turn, trying it
with only one card; we've tried building the generic kernel, just in
case we accidentally took out something necessary; we've taken rc.conf
down to just defining the gateway and addresses for the network
interfaces; at this point I don't know what to try next. I can restore
from backup to cvsup and get any current changes, then rebuild, but I
hate going through all of that without any reason to believe anything
Any ideas for further troubleshooting would be very welcome!
