Dual processor, AMD 64 machine freezing.

K8S Pro includes two Broadcom (bge) NICs and one Intel (fxp) NIC.  I run
with bge0, and so far no problems (knock on wood).

Intel or Broadcom? The "intel" nics would be em(4), the Broadcom nics would
be bge(4). The Thunder K8S comes with dual bge(4).


My boards where rock-stable with complete unconfigured nics; since the
culprit was a misrouted interrupt for the broadcoms. Sometimes doing an
ifconfig was sufficient to "halt" the machine, sometimes I had to initiate a
ftp transfer or other means to generate some network traffic.
