FreeBSD AMD64 5.3-BETA4 FreeBSD 5.3-BETA4 #1: Sun Sep 12 23:56:00 CST 2004     root@:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64

MSI K8D Master-3FS with dual Opteron 242
AHA 29160 SCSI card
2 bge (BroadCom) on board


	The network interface up and down frequently.
	I can see the bge status changes frequently (by ifconfig) among:
	1. 1000baseTX <full-duplex>
	2. 100baseTX <full-duplex>
	3. 10baseTX <full-duplex>
	4. No carrier

	The console shows "bge gigabit linkup" many times
	and the network down for several minutes and up for 
 	another while.
