SMP and networking under FreeBSD 5.3

    Not sure if this is the place to ask this.  But this is a
freebsd question.

    I've been running FreeBSD since about 4.6.  I have 2
machines running FreeBSD.  One is used as a router, its an SMP
machine, and the other is used to build the source code.  

    I'm having a problem with the SMP machine.  When the machine
boots, dmesg shows two messages, that the UP does not show.

WARNING: debug.mpsafenet forced to 0 as ipsec requires Giant
WARNING: MPSAFE network stack disabled, expect reduced

   In v52a I did not get these messages.  After doing some
research, I understand that this has to do with the kernel

   It seems that now my networking is not working on the SMP
machine.  I know others have asked about this, and saw the
release notes, about setting debug.mpsafenet=0, but my
networking is still not working right.  

   Also /dev/kmem and /dev/mem are missing so netstat -ar does
not work either.  

   Where do I start to find a solution to this?

Thanks, Joe
