It's a "new box" with hardware from the late 90s? :-)

I've CC'd PYUN Yong-Hyeon (surname is Pyun), who helps maintain the rl(4)
driver. He might have some ideas.

For now, please provide the output from "vmstat -i" and "pciconf -lv".

And some stuff to ponder, just ideas/comments in passing:

* Board does not appear to have an APIC (not a typo), so IRQ sharing is
likely. IRQ 12 is often used for PS/2 devices (mice, keyboards), and I
see rl0 is sitting on that IRQ.

* Read the BUGS section of the rl(4) manpage; these NICs are known to be
questionable in many regards. The CVS commit log for this driver also
has quite a list of other documented (major) bugs. "User beware":
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cg...ys/pci/if_rl.c

* It's a VIA chipset board. Old Tyan server boards I had using VIA
chips (Apollo with 686B southbridge) would, even so often, stop
handling/firing IRQs. This would happen with almost any device,
even ones which were known to be relible (like fxp(4)). The only
solution would be to hard reset it.
