Ok, so I upgraded the machine to OpenBSD-current (#779) and got
success in booting without panic this time.

>From the boot messages:

/bsd: ti0 at pci0 dev 16 function 0 "Alteon Acenic" rev 0x1 :
irq 9 address <erased>

At the command line:

# ifconfig ti0 
        media: Ethernet autoselect
        status: no carrier

When I get a chance, I'll move it to a gigabit switch and take
it for a spin.
