I have:
tlp0 at pci0 dev 10 function 0: Lite-On 82C169 Etherenet, pass 2.0
tlp0: interrupting at irq 11
tlp0: Ethernet address 00:02:e3:07<snip>
bmtphy0 at tlp0 phy1: BCM5201 10/100 media interface, rev. 2
bmtphy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto

If I boot to single user and
# ifconfig tlp0 up ip.ip.ip.ip netmask 0xffffff00
I immediately get:
Stray interrupt 7

Now I try to ping something with the network cable unplugged from the
card. Instead of getting "No carrier" (ifconfig tlp0 shows status: no
carrier) I get ping: sendto: Host is down.

Now I connect the network cable and try to ping and still get
ping: sendto: Host is down.
ifconfig tlp0 shows media: Ethernet autoselect (100BaseTX)
status: active

and then I start seeing more:
stray interrupt 7
tlp0: filter setup and transmit timeout
stray interrupt 7; stopped logging
tlp0: filter setup and transmit timeout

then after I start using the NIC for something it just shuts up and works.

Has anyone seen anything like this? Or do I just need to enable all the
PCIBIOS fixup IRQ remappings and the like?
