> 8-STABLE doesn't work for me. The ethernet device is not recognized, and I get warnings about interrupt storms on irq19 (atapci1), which I don't see with 8-RELEASE. That might be a matter of missing diagnostics in the release kernel (the numbers from 'vmstat -i' seem to suggest this).

Ditto. I have a Intel BOXDH55TC MB w/ a Core i3-530, 8GB RAM. Grabbed
RELENG_8 , which
says is stable.8. Compiled an amd64 GENERIC kernel. Could not
recognize the ethernet. Had to go to CURRENT to get it working.
