I have an IBM e326m Opteron system for evaluation.  Everything seems  
to be working ok except the ethernet is not recognized.

According to the system specs and product literature, it has two  
Broadcom BCM5714 controllers in it, which the 6.0-RELEASE kernel is  
not attaching.

They identify via pciconf -l -v as follows: (had to hand-transcribe  
since I can't cut/paste)

none1 at pci5:4:0: class=0x020000 card=0x03291014 chip=0x166a14e4  
rev=0x03 hdr=0x00
   vendor=Broadcom Corp

Can anyone help with appropriate defines to get the bge(4) driver to  
detect this chipset?
