I have installed a  gb-mezzanine-card in my bl460c and the card is
recognized (correctly) as a bge-interface.

When I configure it with a valid ip-address status remain "no
carrier". I have put the cable in two different switches, one managed
and one un-managed. The switches do see the link as gbit, but link
remains down.

pciconf -vl | grep -A 3 -i "^bge"

bge0 at pci17:4:0: class 0x020000 card=0x1707103c chip=0c167914e4 rev=0xa3 hdr=0x00
vendor = 'Broadcom Corporation'
class = network
subclass = ethernet

Likewise for bge1.

dmesg | grep -i "^bge"
bge0: <Broadcom unknown BCM5714, ASIC rev. 0x9003> irq 16 at device 4.0 on pci17

The mezzanine card has a 5715 chip according to the spec's.
