I have a few Dell 2650s at work and I had to load FreeBSD 5.2.1 (vs.
4.x-STABLE, which at the time was 4.9). They've all been up to long so I
don't have any handy dmesg output to compare to yours.
pciconf gives me this, which may be of some help:
bge0 at pci3:6:0: class=0x020000 card=0x01211028 chip=0x16a714e4 rev=0x02 hdr=0x00
vendor = 'Broadcom Corporation'
device = 'BCM5703X NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet'
class = network
subclass = ethernet
The "chip" field is close to yours, but not an exact match.
