This is very likely a interrupt routing problem I'm hunting at the moment.
While "ivec 0" is not a realy impossible value, I've never seen it work ;-)

And this looks like the card is not enabled, due to a PCI config space problem
in the sparc64 PCI code. I banged my head against it some time now, but
it's not realy obvious.

I'm seeing equivalent problems with a bge interface I'm currently testing.

Note that both problems are very likely sparc64 MD problems, so the card will
just work if you put it into a i386 machine, I guess.
