FreeBSD c15 6.0-RC1 FreeBSD 6.0-RC1 #5: Wed Oct 12 12:25:58 IST 2005     ilya at c15:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/MY  amd64
              if_vge stopped working for no apparent reason. It worked for a while in FreeBSD 6 beta 5. After one of the reboots (IIRC no kernel upgrade) I have "vge0: MII read timed out, vge0: failed to start MII autopoll, vge0: MII without any phy!, device_attach: vge0 attach returned 6". cvsup'ped today (2005-10-12) but the problem persists.
              The messages are there after each reboot.
