It's normal to see negotiated speed/duplex only after configuring
network interface(At least you have to up the interface to get
valid link). You have configured vge1 in rc.conf, right?

Hmm, there is no such line number 2395 in if_vge.c. Please make
sure you've updated to latest CURRENT. And if you can see the panic
again show me full back-trace info.

I think the former has nothing to do with the latter.
