Just wondering whether you disabled any hardware offloadings. I'm
running a RELENG_7/amd64 as of 2008-Feb-22 with the re(4) driver from
the URLs above. As a precaution, I disabled all kinds of hardware
offloadings.

After almost one week uptime, the machine is still stable. Before it
started lossing packets after very few hours uptime. I'm wondering if
this is related to the options I disabled, so I'm interested in your
settings.
