Thanks for the quick response.  This patch does indeed allow me to boot, but
I am now getting this message:

    OUI 0x080017 model 0x0000 rev 1 at fxp0 phy 1 not configured

Trying to ifconfig the card up gives:

    ifconfig: SIOCSIFMEDIA: Device not configured

I'm still refamiliarizing myself with NetBSD kernel config files, so this
could be operator error that I do not recognize yet.
