 using the new "re" driver will output "re0: watchdog timeout" during a cvsup, the only way to solve that for me was do an ifconfig up/down on the interface every 5 seconds, this before i could write a kernel patch.
 using cvsup to sync ports will do the job.
 i have moved all cards from "re" driver to the old "rl" driver, that was a good solution for me... "re" seems really not stable.
 so now i have rl working instead of re.
 rl0 at pci0:11:0:  class=0x020000 card=0x00b00e11 chip=0x813910ec rev=0x20 hdr=0x00
     vendor   = 'Realtek Semiconductor'
     device   = 'RT8139 (A/B/C/810x/813x/C+) Fast Ethernet Adapter'
     class    = network
     subclass = ethernet
 Hope re will be fixed or "rl" can replace "re" in the meanwhile.
 Thanks for your support.
