This card is not currently supported by any driver I know of.

These PHYs do not support autonegotiation (they may be T4 models),
which triggers a bug in the MII layer.

As a quick'n'dirty hack until that bug is fixed, you can change
IFM_AUTO in dev/ic/i82557.c:fxp_mii_initmedia() to IFM_10_T.

You can also just remove ukphy from your kernel configuration.

iophy(4) is in -current (try updating) but not in GENERICs,
because it doesn't work with common (okay, relatively common..)
82553 variants, although of course, ukphy(4) doesn't help you
much in that case either :-)
