I get a panic with 5.3-SNAP, 5.4-PRE and 6.0-SNAP due to a storm
interrupt as soon as I assign an IP address to it (ifconfig or
The storm interrupt is reported on "irq18: bfe0 uhci2".

I have manage to use this laptop with NDISulator but I cannot boot
LiveCD such as FreesBie.

Here are many information I think might be useful, feel free to ask me
more. I can manage to provide a remote access to this laptop (with
NDISulator, so not sure if usable to debug if_bfe ;) )
