[sam@fqdn.net: bce0 watchdog timeout errors]

I see looking through the archives that Julian Elischer has reported
something *vaguely* similar to my problems described in the attached
message to this list, so I thought I'd join in.

Julian reports a problem when the bce interface is disconnected and then
reconnected under load, and never comes back until all load is removed,
while reporting watchdog timeout errors.

I see something rather like this (details in the attached message
(hopefully the attachment will survive :))), but without physically
disconnecting the cable.

I am wondering if I'm actually seeing the same problem, but that rather
than the cable being unplugged, it's something like the interface
resetting on our (old, 100Mb/s) switch resetting and triggering this.

Thought it was worth offering another data point.  I'm running the most
recent version of the bce driver with the changes to fix the 'mbuf'
