I am testing FreeBSD-8_STABLE updated as of a few minutes ago along
with a msk type NIC.

Having trouble with missed TX interrupts and watchdog timeouts.

Tested which made the NIC
a little more stable but it finally exhibited the same issues after 10
minutes of load vs 1 minute.

Does anyone have any suggestions on things that I can do to make this
NIC more robust?

pciconf -l shows:
  mskc0 at pci0:2:0:0:	class=0x020000 card=0x34588086 chip=0x436111ab
rev=0x18 hdr=0x00

dmesg -a | grep msk shows:
  mskc0: <Marvell Yukon 88E8050 Gigabit Ethernet> port 0xc800-0xc8ff
mem 0xdedfc000-0xdedfffff irq 16 at device 0.0 on pci2
  msk0: <Marvell Technology Group Ltd. Yukon EC Id 0xb6 Rev 0x02> on mskc0
  msk0: Ethernet address: 00:0e:0c:a4:54:ad
  miibus0: <MII bus> on msk0
  mskc0: [FILTER]

Thanks in advance for any pointers, etc
