The PR reports problems while the machine is running, not a panic during 
shutdown.  I couldn't get the PR database to load the PR with the panic from 
vr(4) yesterday.  It's very unclear why clearing IFF_UP makes any difference.  
Ah, perhaps re_intr() should be fixed to check IFF_DRV_RUNNING rather than 
IFF_UP?  Then the re_stop() in re_shutdown() would be sufficient.

I also think that the change to vr(4) should be reverted (way too big of a 
sledge hammer) and instead its interrupt handler can check IFF_DRV_RUNNING 
and bail if it is clear as well.
