RELENG_7 and HEAD: bge causes system hang

Thanks for willingness to help!

I've tried to play with hw.bge.allow_asf sysctl option many times on 
many snapshots of 7-th branch (200708, 200709, 200710, 7.0-BETA1.5, 
7.0-BETA2). More that each time I tracked changes in CVS assumed to be 
related with the problem I csup'ed sources and tried again and again. 
Even changing corresponding code inside of sys/dev/bge/if_bge.c (I mean 
string that currently looks like "static int bge_allow_asf = 0;") didn't 

I know it helps other people who had similar porblems on their HP 
machines with other Broadcom's NIC's. But unfortunately such a solution 
does not fit my case :o(.
