vr0 (rhine ii chipset) "reset never completed!"



Hello,

I've got one of these damn things 

	vr0 at pci0 dev 10 function 0 "VIA RhineII-2" rev 0x43: irq 10 address 00:05:5d:08:e5:d7
	ukphy0 at vr0 phy 8: Generic IEEE 802.3u media interface
	ukphy0: OUI 0x000580, model 0x0000, rev. 0

in one of my machines. The machine was previously running a Linux-based
firewall with "no problems" (*), it is now running i386 OpenBSD 3.2 with pf.

However, after running for a while, vr0 no longer wishes to send or receive,
and the kernel reports 

	Nov 17 04:13:40 darcy /bsd: vr0: watchdog timeout
	Nov 17 04:13:40 darcy /bsd: vr0: watchdog timeout
	Nov 17 04:13:40 darcy /bsd: vr0: reset never completed!
	Nov 17 04:13:40 darcy /bsd: vr0: reset never completed!

message repeatedly.

While looking for clues, I found some other *BSD people were having the same
issues when running dhcpd(8), though this has no relevance in my case. 

As all the other cards I have lying here are Realtek cards, I was hoping the
Rhine card had some hope (the source is quite explicit when it comes to the
Realtek...). 

Have other people had this problem? Seems the only way I can "fix" it, is by
rebooting.

Regards,

Tor

(*) a lie; but the problems were not hardware/driver related.
