I am running the smp kernel, with source dated Feb. 24 (last sync of smp
with -current).  My NetBSD box is currently serving as a firewall and
gateway for my home network, and the epic interface is internal.  I
encounter no problem with normal internet usage, including downloads, but
if I try to ftp large files from the internal network to the gateway, or
vice versa, the interface will repeatedly drop and restart.  If I
attempt this as root, the computer will crash and reboot.

Has anybody noticed this behavior with the pci epic drivers, and if so,
has it been fixed since Feb. 24?  What are the chances that I could update
only the epic source and pull off a successful recompile?
