FWIW, I used this patch on 6.0-RELEASE to get nve ethernet working:

after that I cvsup'en to -stable and rebuilt world, and nve has been
working since.
 I get theses messages occasionally, but they don't seem to indicate
any real trouble:
Mar 12 17:22:52 kg-fil kernel: nve0: device timeout (1)
Mar 12 17:22:52 kg-fil kernel: nve0: link state changed to DOWN
Mar 12 17:22:53 kg-fil kernel: nve0: link state changed to UP

This on a K8-NF-9 motherboard. YMMV.
