 This bug is caused by the ASIC rev not being correctly recognised by 
 FreeBSD:
 
 bge1: <Broadcom BCM5714C Gigabit Ethernet, ASIC rev. 0x9001>
 
 This needs to be added to if_bgereg.h and treated the same as ASIC rev 
 5, BGE_ASICREV_BCM5714.
 
 Otherwise, the ring sizes don't match up resulting in the panic you are 
 seeing (bge maintainers, disable the ASICREV_BCM5714 test to see what 
 happens with a working 5714 :)
 
 later,
 
 Peter.
