Installen a new, true GENERIC kernel, I see that if-carp.ko is loaded
automagically, same result.

Looks like the MAC address of the carp interfaces are not added to the
MAC filter in my sis interfaces.  I'm now building a GENERIC kernel
without if_sis and see what happens if I kldload if_sis.ko from 8.1.
