I have an U60 2x450 MHz that was running 6.1-PRERELEASE:
FreeBSD bel.localdomain 6.1-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 6.1-PRERELEASE #10: Fri Apr 14
08:38:48 MSD 2006     bel at bel.localdomain:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/SUNC3D  sparc64

Plus patch from PR/94778

Plus patch for hme(4) device polling mode

Now, I do not have any problems. Very good network performance (11 MByte/s).

With Best Regards,
Andrew Belashov.
