Intermittent re0 phy failure

At random intervals, when re0 is without any significant load; idle for
lengthy periods, I see ..

kernel: re0: PHY read failed
last message repeated 4 times
kernel: re0: link state changed to DOWN

Unplugging the cable and re-inserting is sufficient to restore

kernel is @ SVN r230276

Any ideas how to track this down?
