It has been pretty stable until I applied the patch from kern/25110.
Since then I haven't had a single problem with it. Before that I
often got "sip0: device timeout" and had to reboot the machine to
make it work again. Though, the highest traffic the interface sees is
about 200 Kilobyte/s over scp because the remote machine is rather slow.
I also use 10BaseT because 100BaseTX gains worse rates here. That could
be the wire or the RealTek on the remote side, of course.
