Something in this commit breaks re(4) interface here.

With a kernel after this change, no re(4) interfaces appear to attach:

# pficonf -lv
none2 at pci2:0:0: class=0x020000 card=0x81aa1043 chip=0x816810ec rev=0x01 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'Realtek Semiconductor'
    class    = network
    subclass = ethernet

Reverting this change fixes my re0 interface, but I am not sure I can
track down why it broke.  Any ideas about where to look for the reason
my re(4) NIC fails to attach after this change?
